School Community Officers are experienced police officers who work with schools to prevent crime and victimisation, supporting them to develop and implement safety education and shared interventions, including about road safety.
Their role is to take every opportunity to prevent harm in the school community, so that students not only are safe, but also feel safe.
There are about 100 School Community Officers, who cover every school in New Zealand. You can contact your school's School Community Officer at your local police station.
