James, Richard K.; Logan, Joan; Davis, Scott A.
School Psychology International, v32 n2 p210-224 Apr 2011
This article discusses the importance of trained police officers, School Resource Officers (SROs), participating in school-based crisis response efforts. These efforts, mostly preventative in nature, mitigate and de-escalate trauma for students exposed to a wide variety of challenging situations. Scenarios are presented with dialogue between students and SRO, offering insights into how SROs support students' emotional needs. The article demonstrates how trained SROs' service complements school-based crisis prevention and intervention efforts.
