Sheriff Jeff Shaver announced the recognition of two Cherokee County SROs by the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO). SRO Sgt. Jordan Kelley and SRO Deputy Brandon Harris recently received recognition as a National Practitioner with NASRO.
To obtain the status of National Practitioner, SROs must meet certain requirements, including submitting over 160 hours of specialized in-service training along with attending a Basic SRO course, an Advanced SRO course, and a NASRO School Safety Conference.
“Our schools, youth, and communities deserve to be served by the best SROs possible,” Sheriff Shaver said. “The SROs have shown a commitment to our partnership with the schools and will continue to do so. We are proud of the program we have now and look forward to making it even better in the future.”
Sgt. Kelley and Deputy Harris will be recognized at the next annual National School Safety Conference in July, 2021. They are pictured with Sheriff Shaver and Chief Deputy Josh Summerford.
