What is an SRO? 

An SRO or School Resource Officer, is an on duty, uniformed law enforcement officer, who is assigned to middle and/or highs school within McKenzie County:    

Horse Creek Public School K-8

(Contact Watford City PD @ 701-842-2280)

SRO Purpose

The intent of the SRO program is that the positive experiences students have with the SRO will bridge the gap between juveniles and law enforcement, and in doing so, help prevent juvenile crime. The SRO’s educate the students by teaching law related classes and other related subjects in the classrooms and counsel both students and parents on various topics.  The SRO becomes involved in the students' lives as a positive role model.  

SRO Goals 

The main goal of the McKenzie County Sheriff Office SRO program is to prevent juvenile delinquency by promoting a positive relationship between school youth and law enforcement officials. The SRO position encompasses three major components which allow the SRO to achieve this goal: law enforcement, education, and counseling.  These three facets allow the SRO to take a more proactive approach to law enforcement when working with youth. SRO's provide all areas of law enforcement duties on their campus.

SRO Contact 

Deputy Cloud can be contacted through any of the respective schools during school hours and by work cell 701-580-2801.
