School Resource Officer Program and Explorer Post #909

By Officer Rodney States

Salt River Police Department School Resource Officer Program

The 2010–2011 school year is now in full gear. Salt River High School/Junior High will be hosting football and volleyball games this fall. We encourage you to come out and support our youth and show your Salt River spirit. Salt River High School and Salt River Elementary School have hosted open houses and will periodically host other school-sponsored events. We look forward to seeing you there.

As you attend these school events, please be mindful of the Community’s gang clothing ordinance. “Gang clothing” means anything displaying gang insignias, monikers or specific color patterns, as well as bandanas, hats, jewelry, clothing, belts or any other clothing or personal property with any gang significance. This ordinance will be enforced at school-based events.

The SRPD’s School Resource Officers are actively engaged in maintaining a safe learning atmosphere for our Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community youth, as well as presenting anti-drug, anti-crime and violence-prevention programs. We would like to thank everyone involved in making our schools a safe place. By ensuring the safety of our youth, we secure the future of this Community.

Salt River Police Explorer Post 909
Along with the new school year comes a variety of extracurricular activities. For young people who might be interested in learning about a career in law enforcement and getting some firsthand experience with the Salt River Police Department, Explorer Post 909 is recruiting young men and women ages 14 to 20 to join us. If you are interested in the Police Explorers program, please call Off. Anslem Flores, myself or Sgt. Matthew Hedrick at (480) 850-8200. Or, you are welcome to attend an Explorer Post meeting, held on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Indian School Police/Fire Substation, located at 11561 E. Indian School Road (on the southwest corner of Center Street and Indian School Road).
