Police Department
School Resource Officer Program

School Resource Officers (SROs) represent the Department's commitment to community policing through an innovative partnership with Prince William County Schools. The SROs mentor County youth during the school day and well beyond it by coaching at their respective schools, working with various student groups after school, and attending evening functions.

The SROs counsel students as well. If a student is having problems at home, in the community, or in the school building, SROs are there to listen, to provide information on helpful County resources, and to be a fair and impartial advocate for doing the right thing for everyone involved. Their law enforcement mission – carried out through mentoring, counseling, and investigation, if needed – is to ensure the safest possible environment for everyone in the school building.

Direct any questions about the program to the following Youth Services Bureau supervisors:

  • Lieutenant C.S. Lawhead, 703-792-7275 (commander)
  • First Sergeant K. Mercer, 703-792-5590 (eastern Prince William County)
  • Sergeant J.D. Wehmeyer, 703-792-4413 (eastern Prince William County)
  • First ​Sergeant D.J. Murphy, 703-792-4419 (western Prince William County)
  • Sergeant D.M. Sullins, 703-792-7244 (western Prince William County)
