School Resource Deputy
The Summit County Sheriff's Office has one part time deputy assigned to schools within the areas that we patrol. These deputies are a resource for the school administrators, staff, parents and students. The deputies offer assistance with daily problems that occur at the schools - including conflict resolution, truancy and safety issues (violence, gangs and drugs). The students are taught to understand the rules and laws and the consequences of misbehavior.

The deputies also assist in the educational process of students and staff. Students have received instruction on aspects of law and youth violence. In staff training, the deputies have focused on issues involving safety, drug and alcohol abuse and child abuse.

Our School Resource Deputies have carried the philosophy of community policing into the schools. The deputies have been able to create a sense of community ownership of the schools and have been instrumental in maintaining a safe school environment.
