School Resource Officers

In partnership with the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, the Folsom Police Department has two School Resource Officers (SRO's) and a Youth Services Detective assigned to Folsom schools. While these officers maintain offices at Folsom High School, Vista del Lago High School and Folsom Lake High School, they have citywide responsibility and routinely respond to all Folsom middle and elementary schools. 

SRO's handle more than just criminal matters on school campuses or police issues involving youth in the community.

  • SRO's develop educational and mentoring relationships with students and serve as a resource for school administrators, teachers and parents.
  • SRO's create and administer after school programs, including fitness programs aimed at developing leadership, respect, courage and discipline while enhancing self-esteem and decreasing bullying. These programs include the Fighting for Fitness program at Folsom middle and high schools.
