The Canton Public Safety Department and the Plymouth-Canton School District are committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students and faculty at the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park. For this reason, three School Resource Officers (SROs) are assigned full-time to the high school campus.
SROs are stationed at Canton, Plymouth, and Salem High Schools to promote positive relationships and communication between the police, students, parents, and educators. The SROs are also at the high schools to enhance the level of policing on campus.
SROs follow the Canton Police Department's philosophy of Community Policing while on campus. Officers handle all criminal complaints and also spend time in classrooms as guest speakers on crime prevention and other topics. Mentoring students is also another large part of the officers' activities.
