School resource officers (SRO)
The National Institute of Justice has released two research reports on investigating the effectiveness of school resource officers (SROs):
- Investigator-Initiated Research: The Comprehensive School Safety Initiative Study of Police in Schools. This study assesses the effects of SROs on school disciplinary offenses and actions. The research addresses whether the effects of SROs vary by student characteristics, SRO approach, or school and community characteristics.
