Community Resource Services

Community Resource Coordinator

Community Resource Coordinators play a crucial role in building bridges between the police department and the community, ensuring that law enforcement efforts are aligned with the unique needs and expectations of the people they serve.

By fostering trust and open communication, they help create a safer and more harmonious environment for everyone involved. Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to, community engagement, conflict resolution, crisis intervention, resource referrals, crime prevention education, youth programs, and collaboration with community leaders.

School Resource Officers

The School Resource Officer (SROs) initiative deploys law enforcement officers to educational institutions, aiming to establish and uphold safe, secure, and well-organized learning atmospheres for students, teachers, and staff. Our officers embody a role beyond being simply "the cop in the shop." SROs embody a proactive approach strategically developed to introduce prevention and intervention measures within schools.

Presently, SROs are assigned to Statesville High School, Northview School, NB Mills Elementary, Oakwood Middle School, East Elementary, and Statesville Christian School.
