Currently, there are two Police Officers assigned as School Resource Officer Program (SRO’s). Additionally there is one officer assigned as the Youth Liaison Officer. The primary function of the SRO’s is building relationships with school officials and students to maintain a safe learning environment for students. This is accomplished by the SRO’s being highly visible on the campuses, especially when the students are out of class, such as before and after school and during the lunch hours. The SRO’s handle police calls for service on the campuses and work with the schools and the students in identifying potential problems.
The Youth Liaison Officer is responsible for a number of juvenile related programs within the Brentwood Police Department and the City of Brentwood. These include the Police Activities League, which operates after school as a daycare at the three middle schools as well as other programs and activities for youth such as; Juvenile Diversion, a program for first time youth offenders; the Police Explorers Program, for youth interested in law enforcement; and Liaison for the City of Brentwood’s Youth Commission.
