School Resource Officers

The Rockledge Police Department is committed to partnerships that keep our community and our youth safe. In 2015, the Rockledge Police Department added two new School Resource Officer positions in order to staff the city's two elementary schools on a part time basis. This ensured on campus officers at every public school in the city, with the two part time officers in the schools three days per week. With the introduction of new legislation to increase school safety, known as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, that requires increases in school safety, to include assigning SRO's or other security officers, the Rockledge Police Department will have full time SRO's at all public schools in the city beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.
