LABELLE, FL. -- Attorney General Charlie Crist this honored School Resource
Officers at the annual conference of the Florida Association of School
Resource Officers. Honored at the conference were eight law enforcement

individual's successful completion of a series of SRO training courses
offered by the institute. The officer must complete 130 hours of
juvenile-related courses from the institute or other authorized training

With the addition of the eight officers receiving the designation today, a
total of 201 School Resource Officers have been certified as practitioners.
