School Resource Officers
In 1990 the Winter Haven Police Department implemented the School Resource Officer Program in our city schools on a full-time basis. The purpose of the program is to build rapport between the students, school officials and parents with the Winter Haven Police Department, plus project a positive image of law enforcement in the Polk County School System and the community.
