School Resource Officer

Our School Resource Officer from the Gladstone Police Department is a presence in our four schools to deter violent acts, to build trust with students who may tell us about planned incidents, and to protect students as needed.

In the past, the school resource officer position has been funded by the City of Gladstone’s public safety levy.

Gladstone Schools maintains a close partnership and ongoing communications with the Gladstone Police Department, which has done training drills in our school buildings to prepare for rapid response to threats. The Gladstone Police are also an active part of the district’s Threat Assessment Team.
