School Safety Program (SSP)

The School Safety Program (SSP) was established by ARS 15-154 in 1994 for the purpose of placing school resource officers (SRO) and juvenile probation officers (JPO) on school grounds to contribute to safe school environments that are conducive to teaching and learning.

Officers develop positive interactive relationships with the students, the staff, and the community that they serve. This proactive, prevention-based program receives cultivation through collaborative working partnerships between officers, school administration, teachers, and police and juvenile probation departments.
