Steamboat Springs Police and Steamboat Springs High School provide a safe learning environment that promotes good health and is free from violence, weapons, hazards, vandalism, and substance abuse for the students and staff.
School Resource Officer
Steamboat Springs Police established the School Resource Officer (SRO) position in 1997. Traditionally across the county, the cost of staffing the SRO is covered outside the department; however, the SSPD covers this position 100% internally; there is no contribution from the school district. The SRO works in partnership with the high school community to address school-based concerns using multi-faceted and innovative approaches.
