Roseville Police School Resource Officers (SROs) are ready for their first day of school. Officers Liz Peterson and Alaina Carrion will join Roseville Area Schools (RAS) this year as the district’s newest SROs.
SROs provide assistance to students and their families, staff, and administrators during difficult situations. Roseville Police Chief Erika Scheider says it's all about building relationships with students and their families.
When we respond to things like family crisis calls, students don’t have to see an unfamiliar face each time. Hopefully they have had some positive interactions with this officer, so that when we respond to a crisis or to a family issue, there is a level of comfort and familiarity between the student and our department.
In the 2022-2023 school year, Roseville Police will have one SRO devoted to the middle school and another at the high school. The middle school post is a new position approved by City Council on May 23, 2022. SRO positions are two-year positions. After serving as an SRO, officers may choose to go back out into patrol or the investigation division at the department.
STATEMENT FROM ROSEVILLE AREA SCHOOLS (RAS)
Roseville Area Schools values the partnership and collaboration with the Roseville Police Department and the school resource officers (SROs) who serve our students, families, and communities. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the 2022-2023 school year with our newest SROs — Officer Liz Peterson and Officer Alaina Carrion. Among their many tasks, the SROs mentor students, provide resources, offer law enforcement-related career advice, and serve on school and district emergency response teams. They are dedicated to building supportive relationships with students and we appreciate all they do for our school communities!
