Thanks for checking out our website! I have been a police officer for twenty one years, starting with the San Jose Police Department and then becoming a Medford Police Officer. After eight years of patrol I became a School Resource Officer, and for the past thirteen years I have worked with the fine folks at South Medford High School. I served as OSROA’s Region 3 Representative for two years prior to being elected president. I am also a Practitioner with the National Association of School Resource Officers.
The past few years have been incredible for OSROA. We have seen our attendance numbers climb, and we are especially excited about the number of non-sworn attendees we are seeing! Our conference has always attracted school-based law enforcement officers, but our goal has been to attract more educators and school staff members. There are a lot more principals, assistant principals, deans, school security officers, disciplinarians and campus monitors than there are SRO’s. Whether or not there is an SRO assigned to your school, our conference offers practical information that you can take back to your school staff and implement to make your campus a safer place.
As president, I make it my priority to ensure that OSROA continues to offer the highest quality training, stays financially solvent and remains the go-to school law reference for SRO’s and educators in Oregon. It is my honor and privilege to serve the men and women of OSROA and I hope that you will take some time to peruse our website and learn about us. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to Contact Me or send me a message on my “Officer Jackson” Facebook page and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
