A partnership between the city of Fresno and Fresno Unified will deploy School and Neighborhood Resource Officers at Fresno Unified middle schools.
The resource officers are paid through a grant from the Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services and are in charge of improving campus safety as well as engaging communities around the middle schools. The new officers are expected to build trust among students, schools, community members and law enforcement officials.
Crime and quality of life in the community will also be addressed by the officers.
For more information on the new officers, contact Sgt. Rodney Cancio at 559-457-3729.
