The Tolleson Elementary School District is proud to partner with the City of Tolleson and City of Phoenix to provide School Resource Officers as part of the Arizona Department of Arizona School Safety Program Grant.
The School Safety Program is a state-funded grant that places School Resource Officers (SROs) in selected schools to contribute to safe school environments that are conducive to teaching and learning. School Safety Program officers maintain a visible presence on campus: deter delinquent and violent behaviors; serve as an available resource to the school community; and provide students and staff with Law-Related Education (LRE) instruction and training. The goal of LRE is to prepare students for responsible citizenship by promoting the development of those characteristics that lead to healthy behavior. LRE is the instruction about rules, laws and the legal system which actively involves the students towards its goal.
