The SRO should be posted at the door during the start of each school day. He/She should be highly visible and should greet the students as they enter the building. Also his gun should be holstered and visible to the students as the enter the building.

He/She should patrol the halls and be visible during all major school school activities.

At the end of each day, the SRO should again be visible at the exit of the school building greeting and observing all the students. 

The SRO is the safety eyes and ears of the school safety goals, the SRO must also be a voice. Notes about students who pose potential threats should be conveyed to the proper school and city authorities. 

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
