January 9 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and Catoosa County Public Schools would like to thank the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office, the Fort Oglethorpe Police, and the Ringgold Police, for protecting our families and the community. The system would also like to recognize the 12 School Resource Officers (SROs) who serve in our schools. 

The district’s system-wide safety plan is divided into 2 objectives: physical safety; and, social and emotional health. We know that resource officers enhance physical safety because they encourage a positive school climate, and they are prepared for crisis situations; however, we see the officer’s daily informal interactions with students as one of their greatest benefits.

On a daily basis, school resource officers build positive relationships with students. They become another trusted adult in the school that students may confide in when they are having trouble at school, or at home. Through these relationships we believe SROs contribute to the social and emotional well-being of students, and, when necessary, students are more comfortable reporting issues that need to be investigated to maintain safe schools.

CCPS would like to thank our board of education, the board of commissioners, and the sheriff, for making the safety of our children a top priority, and for committing funding for SROs in our schools.
