November Monthly Meeting and Educational Program

November Educational Programming:  School Resource Officers  Keeping Our Children Safe Each Day

Join us for a discussion on the role of School Resource Officers (SRO).  SROs are sworn law enforcement officers responsible for safety and crime prevention in schools.  Hear from SROs assigned in the Paradise Valley School District.  They will address a variety of issues including: the role of SROs, reporting lines of SROs, SRO school placement, funding of SROs, and changes that may be on the horizon. 

The program will take place November 14, 2018 at 10:15 a.m., after the UPC Monthly Meeting at 9:00 a.m. 

UPC TIP: We'd love for everyone to attend both the general meeting and the educational programming but we understand it is a long meeting! So please come for the whole meeting or just part of the meeting- hope to see you there!
