School Programs

The school resource officers instruct on various topics such as bullying, self-esteem, peer pressure, Internet safety, etc.  Additionally, the school resource officer will work with staff at each of the districts identifying any problems or issues with their respective student populations (i.e. the choking game, morning glory seeds, etc.).

The school resource officers also serve as liaisons between the school districts and the Sheriff’s Office. They work toward conflict resolution with the students and strive to assist the schools in creating a friendly and safe learning environment.

Funding for the program is a shared venture between Bradford Schools, Milton-Union Exempted Village Schools, Miami-East Local Schools, Bethel Local Schools, the Upper Valley Career Center and the Sheriff's Office.
