910: School Resource Officer


The Board believes in the importance of, and is committed to, establishing and maintaining a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe working and learning environment.

The Board believes that a regular onsite presence of a police officer helps prevent anti-social, destructive, illegal and unacceptable behavior at school and in the community. Having one RCMP peace officer as a School Resource Officer (SRO) provides a direct connection between the community, the school and the police.

To recognize the need to be proactive and preventative in providing policing support resources for Sturgeon Composite High School students, Sturgeon Public School Division, Greater St. Albert Roman Catholic Separate School Division and the Town of Morinville have signed a triparty School Resource Officer Agreement.


2.1 The School Resource Officer at Sturgeon Composite High School is not an employee of the Division and is, at all times, a police officer managed and supervised through the Morinville RCMP Detachment.

2.2 As a member of the RCMP, the SRO’s primary authorities and duties first come from those being a Police Officer of the RCMP.
