Ensuring the safety of our schools
The Anchorage Police Department views the School Resource Officer Program as an opportunity to continue the strong partnership with the Anchorage School District and to provide a safe working and learning environment for teachers, support staff, administrators, and students.
School Resource Officers will attempt to reduce juvenile crime through law enforcement, education, and prevention programs. School Resource Officers will work with students to build trust and break down barriers.
