Welcome to the Official Website of the South Carolina Association of School Resource Officers

The South Carolina Association of School Resource Officers was developed by a group of 23 School Resource Officers in 1996. Those SRO’s saw a need to have a statewide organization for officers to contact on what programs were working and what programs had not worked in our schools, how to handle certain situations, and a clearing house for lesson plans.

S.C.A.S.R.O. developed into an organization that is now recognized statewide and nationally.

S.C.A.S.R.O. was instrumental in working with the South Carolina General Assembly and the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy in developing a standard for School Resource Officer’s and a state law giving SRO’s state wide jurisdiction while on a school function. (SC code section (5-7-12)
