The Resource Officers allow the Oregon City Police Department an opportunity to have direct interaction with school staff, students, parents, and citizens in our community. Their goal is to establish a safe environment for the learning process and eliminate barriers between youth, young adults, and the police. Public safety and law enforcement are the primary responsibility of the Resource Officers, with an emphasis on prevention.

The Resource Officers are available on a daily basis to meet with students, parents, and staff. These officers are a resource to both the school administration and the student body while working to create a safe learning environment for each student. The officers patrol school grounds, respond to police calls for service in the area, and participate in juvenile enforcement efforts to prevent juvenile delinquency. The Resource Officers provide guidance on ethical issues in the classroom and informal settings, as well as individual counseling and mentoring to students. In addition to their common duties, you may find OCPD's Resource Officers in the classroom offering presentations on the criminal justice system and other topics that help build an understanding of law enforcement's role in the community.

OCPD's SROs also help coordinate and lead the annual OCPD Summer Camp program, providing summer activities for incoming 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students within the Oregon City School District.
