School Resource Officers

The Appleton Area School District partners with the Appleton Police Department and the Grand Chute Police Department through our School Resource Officer (SRO) Program.

This valuable part of our team serves to provide additional safety and supervision, teach our students about the importance of law enforcement, and to communicate about and respond to potential threats to student, staff, parent, and visitor safety. 

The Appleton Police Department's SRO program is one of the longest-running and well-established SRO programs in the state of Wisconsin.There are currently 12 police officers working in City of Appleton schools. Each has a primary office at the elementary, middle, or high school they are assigned to. Their assignments also include the parochial/private schools in the City.

In addition to the SROs, there is a lieutenant who serves as a coordinator of the program and who also works on a variety of community initiatives to provide better services to juveniles and their families.
