The School Resource Officer (SRO) Program is a partnership between the Auburn Public School System and the Auburn Police Department. The purpose is to promote a positive relationship between youth and police, to ensure a safe learning environment for both students and staff.
In order to continue to provide the highest level of care to our students, and to further highlight our commitment to our schools, we have added a second School Resource Officer as of the 2023 school year. The addition of a second School Resource Officer will ensure more adequate coverage throughout the school system and allow for our officers to dedicate more time to the needs of the students and staff.
Officer Jon O'Brien and Officer Randy McCarthy are both assigned as the School Resource Officers (SRO) / Juvenile Officers for the Town of Auburn.
Their role as School Resource Officers is to reduce juvenile delinquency offenses and truancy in our school system. Both Officers are currently assigned to investigate any crime or incident that occurs in the Auburn School System.
Both Officers work with the school's resolving problems and violations, such as bullying or disorderly behaviors. The main objective of the School Resource Officer Program however is to promote a positive environment and be a positive role model within the community by increasing the visibility and accessibility of police to the school community.
