SRO Unit looks sharp during unit inspection
The School Resource Unit looked sharp recently during a formal inspection held in Marathon. The unit has officers assigned to five schools in the county. SRO deputies are charged with patrolling the schools, interacting with students, assisting school administrators and teaching a Project Alert class which addresses many issues, including resisting peer pressure to drink alcohol and do drugs, bullying prevention, what alcohol, tobacco and drugs do to a person’s body, and much more.

Sonya Morgan, Sugarloaf School and Sgt. Glenn Test, who heads up the unit and also works at Marathon High School.
