School Resource Officers
Through a cooperative agreement with the City of Elgin Police Department, School Resource Officers (SROs) are utilized for School Security and Law Enforcement. SROs are not security guards, but sworn peace officers with the City of Elgin, and have full police authority under Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Article 2.12.
SROs at Elgin Schools are permanently assigned to the district to protect students, staff, and visitors. In additional to TCOLE mandated continuing education courses, Elgin PD SROs receive additional specialized training on crisis intervention techniques, mental health, as well as de-escalation techniques. Utilizing the community-oriented policing approach, SROs at Elgin ISD foster positive relationships between students and the law enforcement community.
If you would like information, have a compliment, or complaint about an SRO, please contact the Elgin Police Department at:
