Police Department
School Resource Officer
​​​​​School Resource Officers (SROs) handle all calls for service in their assigned schools, including runaway juveniles who may attend their school. The SRO handles investigations of drug use, possession of weapons and other possible criminal violations that may hamper the orderly daily operations of a school. They also work closely with the Department of Social Services to resolve family-related issues.
Many SROs go beyond the normal work day by coaching at their respective schools, attending evening functions and working with student groups after school. The presence of Prince William County Police officers has proven to be paramount in changing negative stereotypes about law enforcement and has, in fact, fostered a positive view of police by County youth.
The program has proven to be successful since its inception in 1975. All SROs are trained according to standards provided by the Center for School Safety, and are focused in enforcing juvenile law. They concentrate on mentoring County youth. The SROs are committed to working closely with the administrative staff of the Prince William County Schools (including the Superintendent, the Prince William County School Board, local principals and staff, and School Risk Management) to ensure the safest possible environment for students.
Direct any questions about the program to the following Youth Services Bureau supervisors:
  • Lieutenant Dave Burghart, 703-792-7275 (bureau commander)
  • First Sergeant Dave Smith, 703-792-5590 (high schools)
  • Sergeant Annie Tyrrell, 703-792-5358 (high schools)
  • First ​Sergeant Mark Depatie, 703-792-4419 (middle schools)
