School Resource Officer (RCMP)
Charles Spencer, we believe that education and prevention are the keys to a
safe community. As a result, School Resource Officers are RCMP officers who
work with all our junior and senior high schools in the District. The officers are regularly onsite at the
schools and work closely with the school administration in order to build
positive relationships with the students. This progressive partnership with the
