School Resource Officers

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department provides School Resource Officers in the following school districts:
  • Bethel
  • Puyallup
  • Franklin Pierce
School Resource Officers are uniformed deputies that are assigned to carry out law enforcement on school campuses, including conducting criminal investigations, making arrests when necessary, developing intervention strategies, crisis planning, and pro-active crime prevention.

School Resource Officers work diligently to build trusting relationships with faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and students. These relationships are vital in providing a safe environment for learning, preventing crime on school campuses, intervening in drug issues, and effectively addressing non-criminal student safety needs.
