Welcome back ----
The Westminster Police Department SRO’s want to welcome our students back to school! 
We hope our students, families and staff had a restful and rejuvenated summer.   Many of our SRO’s caught up on some well-deserved vacation time, honed in on training while waiting patiently for the students and staff to return to reunite those relationships. 
A few reminders….
Please remember to arrive early, dress appropriately, and treat everyone with respect. Please be aware of your surroundings and, most importantly have fun while making some new friends!
For those of you driving to school, please be safe. Keep your eyes on the road, limit all distractions in your car, and wear your seatbelts. 
And most importantly, if you see or hear something, say something– not just on social media – please report it immediately to law enforcement or any school administrator. School administrators and law enforcement will sort out the validity. Together, we are better.
Our mission is to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our children by cooperative efforts with school staff, students, parents, and guardians, along with our community. The goal of the SRO Program is to reduce juvenile crime by helping students formulate an awareness of roles, authority, and justice. SROs represent a proactive strategy designed to bring prevention and intervention into schools while fostering a positive relationship with law enforcement.
Welcome back students! Let’s have a safe and exciting school year making positive memories!
