School Resource Officers are Portland Police Bureau officers working to ensure safety around schools in the Portland area. They patrol nearby neighborhoods during school hours, police traffic around campus, and assist with bullying issues at school.
Get to know your School Resource Officer
The Portland Police Bureau encourages students to get to know their SRO, ask questions, and talk with the officer about what is happening in and around school.
Not sure which SRO is assigned to your student's school? You should be able to find out this information through your school's main office. Another option is to get in touch with the Police Bureau's Youth Services Division. They can direct you to the right officer for your district.
** If you would like to report unsafe situations around or on the way to school and it is NOT an emergency, please call the police bureau's non-emergency line:
Telephone Report Unit (non-emergency line): 503-823-3333
The non-sworn officers staffing the Telephone Report Unit line will direct your concerns to the correct SRO when appropriate.
