The Denville Police Department currently has two specially trained officers assigned to two of the regional high schools located within the Township as full time School Resource Officers (SRO).  These schools are Morris Knolls High School and the Morris County School of Technology.

A School Resource Officer is a sworn law enforcement officer who is assigned to a specific school or schools in a community oriented policing assignment.  The SRO works with the school's administration to ensure the safety of the school, the students, the staff and any visitors.  Although their primary assignment is school safety, their role within the school takes on many other responsibilities.  Their knowledge and experience in law enforcement can be utilized in teaching roles in various classes.  They take on the role of a mentor, often speaking with and counseling students on any number of non-police related matters from homework to peer-to-peer relationships.
