2019 ASROA Conference a Success!
The 2019 Arizona School Resource Officer Association (ASROA) School Based Policing Conference was held June 10-13, 2019 at the Talking Stick Resort on the Salt-River-Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation just outside of Scottsdale, AZ. ASROA is a non-profit 501-c-3 organization that exists for the purpose of training, educating and providing resources to the officers and those associated with Law Enforcement working in schools. Since its founding in 1996, the diverse membership of School Resource Officers and school safety/security personnel have influenced the lives of thousands of Arizona students, teachers, administrators and parents statewide.
ASROA was founded on the triad concept of responsibilities held by a School Resource Officer (SRO): Teacher – Counselor – Law Enforcement Officer. This three-part role is essential to the health of an SRO unit’s success, and by extension, to the schools and communities they serve. Following this model, the men and women of ASROA develop positive images of law enforcement to Arizona’s youth, in addition to preventing and responding to campus violence and crime. ICSAVE was honored to be apart of this year’s conference, which offered up-to-date, vital information and training, continuing education units, and the opportunity to network with other SROs from around Arizona. To the brave men and women who selflessly serve our various community schools, thank you for your service!
