School Resource Officers

The School Resource Officer is an experienced officer assigned to a school and serves as a law enforcement officer on campus as well as a mentor and teacher. All of the SRO’s have received certification training and are recognized by the State of Missouri as certified School Resource Officers.

The SRO is a resource for students, staff, and parents. The SRO enforces the law on and off the school campus, investigates crimes, writes reports, makes arrests, and juvenile referrals. The SRO works closely with the staff of the school, interacts with the students, and is a liaison officer between the school and other law enforcement agencies. The SRO consults with parents in areas of the officer’s expertise.

The Commander of the School Resource Officers is Lieutenant Amy Tippett.  LT Tippett works out of the Ninth Grade Center, in Moscow Mills.  You can contact LT Tippett at
