The Florida Association of School Resource Officers will host the 38th Annual Training Conference July 9 -14, 2017 at Disney Lake Buena Vista Palace Orlando, 1900 Buena Vista Dr, Orlando, FL 32830. During this week, the Florida Crime Prevention Training Institute will conduct its School Resource Officer Basic class.
The five-day SRO Basic Training course provides the participant with the history, philosophy and basic skills to serve as an SRO. Participants will receive instruction in juvenile law, counseling skills, development of a referral network, identification and ways to handle exceptional students, and classroom training techniques. In addition, participants will learn about current trends in SRO programs, law-related education and adolescent suicide.
The course is offered primarily for law enforcement personnel who have been involved in school-based programs for less than three years. School administrators and persons interested in increasing their knowledge of the SRO program will benefit from this training. The curriculum is approved by the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission as an “Advanced Course” and is a salary incentive course for law enforcement officers who successfully complete an exam.
ATTENTION — PLEASE NOTE THESE REQUIREMENTS:
The Attorney General’s Office is pleased to be invited to once again work with FASRO in offering SRO training. Since the SRO Basic Training Class is an FDLE “Advanced Class” that allows officers to earn re-training hours or receive salary incentive dollars, this class must be strictly in compliance with FDLE standards and procedures. Therefore, this class will be held concurrently with the conference. This means officers in the SRO Basic Training Class will not be able to attend regular conference sessions during the day. HOWEVER, All SRO Basic Attendees can participate in all of the after-hour functions.
More information about the FASRO conference can be found on the FASRO website.
Visit the FASRO Event Registration site to register.
I will be instructing the Wednesday portion of the class on Law Related Education, Classroom Instruction Techniques and Computer Crimes/Internet Safety for SROs.
