Dear Members of the School Board,
We are writing to express our strong support for the return of School Resource Officers (SROs) to our high schools in Santa Rosa. After a recent meeting with Santa Rosa's Chief of Police John Cregan, it has become evident that the Police Department is willing to collaborate and find a middle ground that ensures the safety and security of our students while also addressing the concerns of our community.
In recent years, we have witnessed an alarming increase in the presence of firearms within our community and, regrettably, a rise in threats of violence within our schools. These developments have created an environment of uncertainty and fear, affecting the learning experience for our students and causing distress among parents and educators.
Returning SRO officers to our high schools represents a proactive step towards ensuring a safer and more secure educational environment for our students. The presence of SRO officers has the potential to not only deters threats but also provides valuable resources for students in need of guidance and support.
We would like to emphasize that Chief John Cregan and the Police Department have shown a genuine commitment to addressing the concerns of our community and working collaboratively with the school district to create an environment where all students feel safe and supported. This willingness to compromise and adapt to the needs of our schools demonstrates a sincere dedication to the well-being of our children.
By returning SRO officers to our high schools, we are taking a proactive stance to address the pressing issue of school safety. It is imperative that we provide our students with an environment in
