SRO Assignments & Emergency Support Protocol
Safe Schools Office

Principal Bulletin

SacPD is very excited to continue the partnership with SCUSD for the 2012/2013 school year. This year SacPD will have 8 SRO’s and 1 Sergeant assigned to Sac City schools, this is a reduction from last year when there were 12 SROs and 1 Sergeant.  Sac PD has also assigned LT.  Lisa Hinz to Sac City schools. Lt. Hinz will also be coordinating youth programs in the City of Sacramento.

SRO’S have been assigned to the 5 comprehensive high schools, 1 continuation high school and two middle schools. The SROs assigned to the High Schools have a primary responsibility to stay on the High School campuses for the majority of their time. The two SRO’s assigned to middle schools will fill in at any High School when the assigned SRO is absent.

High Schools are our priority; however we understand that urgencies will arise on other campuses. SPD SROs will try to be responsive to other schools when at all possible. The best way to request a SRO at your school if you do not have one is to contact Sergeant Chris Taylor (916-919-5743). In his absence contact Acting/Sergeant Adam Cunningham (916-919-5752).

If you do not have an SRO on site, here are some examples of when to call for a SRO versus calling the Non-Emergency number of the local PD 264-5471, Sheriff 874 5115

Call Sgt. Taylor when:

  1. You have an ongoing issue with a neighbor
  2. You have an employee who suspect has committed a crime
  3. Any non-emergency situation involving students, parents and employees

 When to call 911:

  1. You have a crime in progress; such as a fight
  2. You have any emergency occurring at the present time

When to call Tracey Lopez and/or campus security:

  1. When you want to serve a withdrawal of consent to a parent
  2. If you have issues with any cameras on your campus

Call the SPD non-emergency number for any other situation, or you are unable to reach Sgt. Taylor.

We understand that different situations can be dynamic, you are encouraged to contact your Area Assistant Superintendent for additional support.
