School Resource Officer
The Richmond PD partners with the Mount Mansfield Unified Union School District (MMUUSD) to supply a School Resource Officer (SRO) to work at Camel’s Hump Middle School. The SRO incorporates the roles of law enforcement officer, law-related counselor and law-related education teacher. The SRO role is filled by a Richmond PD officer. MMUUSD compensates the Richmond PD for the hours that the officer works in the school.
Community Outreach Program.
The Community Outreach Program in the participating communities of South Burlington, Colchester, Essex, Williston, Winooski, Richmond, and Shelburne was inspired by Burlington’s Street Outreach model. In the participating towns, outreach specialists work in partnership with local and regional law enforcement to respond to individuals with unmet social service needs, often due to mental health or substance use issues.
More information about the program can be found in this presentation that was given to the Richmond Selectboard on Oct. 19, 2020: Community Outreach – Richmond Selectboard meeting 10.19.20
