"The School Resource Officer - Bonding America's Youth and Law Enforcement"
Johnston Police Department
In an effort to provide a safe environment for all of our students, faculty, and staff members, the Nicholas A. Ferri Middle School in cooperation with the Johnston Police Department has a School Resource Officer ("SRO") on campus throughout the school day. The School Resource Officer is an active part of the school administration, working closely with the principal and assistant principals to provide a safe scholastic environment for all students. In addition to the basic duties and responsibilities as a sworn law enforcement officer, the School Resource Officer also provides educational leadership to the students, faculty and parents addressing tobacco, alcohol, drugs, violence diffusion and prevention, as well as crime prevention and safety issues in the school community.
