Sarasota County Schools has received numerous applications for the Chief of Police and Police Sergeant positions. As of May 25, when these jobs closed, the school district has received 26 applications for the Chief of Police job and 43 for three Police Sergeant positions. School Resource Officer (SRO) positions have been posted for a week and the school district has received 43 applications thus far to-date. SRO jobs will remain open until all the positions are filled. The school district is looking to hire 21-24 SRO’s for the 2018-19 school year.

“I am delighted by the overwhelming response from applicants for key leadership positions in the Sarasota County Schools Police Department,” noted Michael Andreas, executive director of Public Safety. “The level of experience these men and women possess is impressive. Keeping our students safe and secure is paramount to all that we do and I am excited to meet with the applicants to assess their credentials and ability to work in a school environment.”

Anyone seeking to apply as an SRO can do so on the school district’s website.

The Sarasota County Schools Police Department has been formed in response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School Safety Act. In addition to the school-based police force, the school district will continue to partner with local law enforcement for the 2018-19 school year to further ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff on school campuses.
