School Resource Officers

If you are a citizen of the local school district or planning a move to the area, please be assured we are doing our best in providing safety for our students. The Mountain Home Police Department and the Mountain Home School District enjoy a long-standing partnership in providing an excellent school resource officer program.

The program's success is primarily obtained by utilizing a triad approach of teaching, counseling, and law enforcement. The basics of the program were tailored after recommendations received during training provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The Comprehensive School Safety Leadership Initiative was completed by attendance at the School Resource Officer Leadership Program, Safe Schools Interagency Team Planning Program, and Chief Executive Officer Safe Schools Forum as required by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The initiative is a comprehensive interagency strategy designed to assist communities in focusing leadership and resources on the issues related to creating and maintaining a safe school environment by achieving the following goals.

  • Demonstrate standards of excellence that promote the effective use of school resource officers.
  • Promote community and school collaboration that supports comprehensive proactive partnerships among public and private entities, schools, and the community.
  • Illustrate the importance of a locally based interagency strategy to identify and address school and community safety issues.
  • Increase the capacity of community leaders, organizations, and schools to use information to make more informed decisions regarding children, youth, and families particularly as they relate to school safety.
  • Help community leaders develop an action plan centered on specific goals and objectives related to safe schools.
  • Help communities refocus existing community resources to better serve children, youth, and families in the community and the schools.

Providing safety factors through proactive programs is a way to minimize the effects of the risks our youth may be exposed to. According to information provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, crimes committed by youth begin a sharp rise around 13 to 15 years of age and peak at 19 years of age.

In an effort to suppress juvenile crime in the community, provide a safe learning environment, and prevent school based violence, 3 school resource officers are strategically located in the local school district. Officers present the following programs in an effort to obtain our goals. 

 Internet Safety----Smart Choices Better Chances----Crisis Prevention Intervention----After School Program----- Junior Police Academy----Active Shooter Response Training----Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)----Government Classes for 4th Amendment Issues----DWI/ DUI Awareness Classes----Self Defense for Female Students----Paint Ball Competition----Student Ambassadors For Everyone (SAFE)----Tobacco Education Group (TEG)----Security for School and School Events
