We would like to invite you to participate in our inaugural ‘Secondary School Student Survey of the Waterloo Regional Police Service School Resource Officer Program’.
For well over 20 years, uniform members of the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS) have been assigned to visit and support local schools to build positive relations with youth and to be available as a resource for crime prevention and safety initiatives. These specifically trained officers are known as School Resource Officers (SROs). Presently six dedicated Secondary SROs are responsible for visiting 40 secondary schools (Public, Catholic, Alternative and Private) in the Region of Waterloo.
The findings of this survey will be used to help develop recommendations on how to: effectively utilize the presence of SROs within the school community, improve the visibility of our SROs and finally, how to develop and sustain collaborative relationships with students.
Please see the attached document for more information and instructions on how to participate in the survey.
