The Delano Police Department is proud of the cooperative relationships that have been fostered between this Department and other agencies. We are excited to have entered into agreements with both the Delano Union School District and the Delano Joint Union High School District to provide services to these districts.
Our professionally trained staff work side-by-side the employees of both districts to ensure the needs of each specific school site are being met.
Currently, the Delano Police Department provides one school resource officer (SRO) to the Delano Union School District.
Responsibilities of the School Resource Officer
The duties of the school resource officer include providing law enforcement services to the students, staff, faculty of the district, investigating possible crimes that occur on campus, promote positive behavior to the students, enforce school rules and policies, and to remove students from campus who pose a threat to other students, staff, or faculty. These officers also serve as role models to the students and enforce all school related policies.
