The main purpose of the School Resource Officer is a triad concept of Law Enforcement Officer, Law Related Educator, and Law Related Counselor. Designed to bridge the gap between Law enforcement and community's youth. He is often the first responder to incidents that occur at the schools. The simple presence of a School Resource Officer on campus helps deter criminal behavior.
We have two School Resource Officers, Officer Darin Wilkins is our D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T. instructor for 5th & 6th graders and has an office at Hughes Middle School (346-3250). The officer at Virgin Valley High School (346-2780) is Sgt. Mike Van Houten. Please feel free to visit either of these officers at the school or you may contact their direct supervisor, Captain Scott Taylor 346-5262.
