Who are the school resource officers and what do they do?

Detective Chase Peterson, School Resource Officer at Box Elder Middle SchoolDetective Chase Peterson
School Resource Officer
Box Elder Middle School
(435) 734-6681 or (435) 734-4880 (BEMS)

The School Resource Officer (SRO) program is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer within the educational environment. The officer is involved in a variety of functions while in the school aimed at prevention. Besides being an active high profile law enforcement officer, the SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers, and administration regarding law issues. They also serve as link to other service agencies that provide preventive and counseling services within the school district. Working hand-in-hand with the principal in each school, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems afflicting school-age children.

The SRO is a proactive approach in dealing with the pressures that today's youth find themselves having to confront, including the use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco; peer pressure; gang activity; and sex. These issues affect not only the schools, but also the community. Traditionally, the police and schools did not interact until one called upon the other. The SRO system, the community, and those within the realm of law enforcement are now working together to resolve these problematic situations.

Some of my items were put into evidence for safekeep. How do I get them back?

The Detective Sergeant and our Evidence Custodian are the only officers authorized to release evidence. Because they are sometimes out of the office, the best thing to do is call ahead of time or better yet, schedule an appointment for picking up your items. The main number to the business office is (435) 734-6650.
