Sargent James Quackenbush will be our speaker at this Town Hall meeting. As a Portland Police officer, there is much he could share but today's meeting will focus on the School Resource Officer Program and safety in schools.
Ensuring school safety is the highest priority of school resource officers. Their main mission is to provide a school environment that is free of crime, the fear of crime, and intimidation and disorder, so that school staff and students can achieve their education goals without distraction. The School Resource Officer (SRO) works closely with school staff, students and parents and are included in every major discussion related to school safety and disorder. The primary activities of the SRO are problem solving, education, mentorship, and crime prevention.
This should be a great follow up to what three of the east Portland school superintendents shared at the most recent Government and Economic Affairs AM.
Coffee and breakfast goodies will be provided.
