Gatesville PD SROs provide support at all five GISD campuses
In past years, Gatesville Independent School District had one School Resource Officer who serviced all the campuses, but the program has been expanded.
“Last year the District made the commitment to partner with the Gatesville Police Department to have an SRO at each campus,” Executive Director of Operations and Student Services Scott Harper, said
Harper said the SROs are fully vetted, licensed police officers who are hired by the police department and assigned to GISD for 37 weeks.
The job of the SRO includes answering calls for service, providing advice to school administration and having interaction with the students on campus.
