School Security

School Resource Officers

The Robertson County Sheriff's Office designates Deputies who are assigned as School Resource Officers which provide security in several Robertson County schools.

Their primary responsibility is to provide a safe, violence and drug free learning environment for students.

In addition to enforcing all state statutes, these officers teach classes in driving, drug awareness, peer pressure, anger management and conflict resolution.

D.A.R.E. Program

This year millions of school children around the world will benefit from D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the highly acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.

D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of our nation's school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world.

D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.
