Having worked at Bothell HS for 18 years as the Campus Supervisor, I want to point out that the positives of having a School Resource Officer (SRO) on campus are tremendous. Every Bothell Police Department officer that I have worked with have been professional, approachable and a huge asset to our campus.

My fear of stereotyping all SROs as those who target children of color or neurodivergent children is just not true.
