School Resource Officer (SRO)

Understanding that effective schooling requires a safe and orderly environment in which learning can occur, the West Lampeter Township Police Department joined with the Lampeter-Strasburg School District to start a School Resource Officer position.  Starting in January of 2019, the West Lampeter Township Police Department provides the school administrators and staff with a fulltime sworn West Lampeter Township police officer.  The officer is employed by West Lampeter Township and assigned to the L-S campus to provide law enforcement expertise and resources to assist school staff in maintaining safety within their assigned schools.  The endeavor is a partnership between education and law enforcement to support a collaborative, problem-solving approach to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff.
