The Regina Police Service School Resource Officer Program utilizes the concept of community policing with officers acting as a resource to faculty, students, parents and community within a school environment. An officer is assigned to each Regina High School with responsibility for a number of elementary schools. Each School Resource Officer has an office within his/her high school(s) and interacts with students, teachers, school staff and parents on a daily basis. School Resource Officers provide education on safety, substance abuse, life skills and the justice system to Elementary and High School students. School Resource Officers also investigate complaints to police involving schools. In some cases mediation brings about a successful resolution to the complaint; in other cases a criminal charge may result. There are thirteen School Resource Officers assigned to Regina’s high schools and elementary schools.
