The Moses Lake Police Department has formed a partnership with the Moses Lake School District and currently has two officers assigned to the School Resource Officer program.
The School Resource Officers (SRO) work within the District to provide a safe environment for students. They are responsible for the security of students, the enforcement of criminal laws, and investigation of crimes that occur on school grounds. They have fostered partnerships with school security, school administration, students and volunteers. The SRO's operate primarily from an office at the Moses Lake High School but frequently travel to other schools within the district.
The SRO's also provide training to school personnel and students regarding drug and alcohol awareness as well as other tops as needed.
