Within El Dorado County there are sixteen different school districts that oversee fifty-nine individual schools. The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office serves the majority of these schools with two full time deputies assigned to the School Resource Officer (SRO) program. The SRO Deputies respond to all calls for service at the high schools located in the County along with most middle and elementary schools. Their duties include providing general law enforcement services, criminal investigation follow-ups, public presentations, and security for athletic and special events at the schools. 


They also work with the El Dorado County Office of Education to present educational opportunities to faculty and parents regarding the growing trends of student behavior and to help deter students from engaging in criminal activity. SRO’s regularly attend meetings such as Student Attendance Review Board and school district meetings for expulsion hearings or if a controversial topic is being discussed.
