A Brief History:

The Carrollton Police Department’s School Resource Officer (SRO) program began in 1975 with the placement of an officer in the Carrollton-Farmer’s Branch Independent School District. In 1976, Carrollton PD and CFBISD entered into their first inter-local agreement. By 1979, the SRO program was expanded to two officers. Over the years, CPD has continued to expand the SRO program to a total of five officers currently assigned to CFBISD schools to help meet the needs of the increasing student population in Carrollton.

In 1999, CPD assigned its first officer to Hebron High School to serve all school campuses within LISD. In 2008, CPD assigned its second SRO to LISD. CPD currently has seven SRO’s assigned to cover the schools within the city limits of Carrollton.
