Howard County to hold a Virtual Town Hall about SROs in Schools on November 12th at 6:30pm

As part of conversations about the roles, purpose and outcomes of School Resource Officers (SROs) in Howard County schools, the public is invited to take part in a virtual town hall, Thursday, November 12, from 6:30-8 p.m.

During the town hall, panelists will discuss SROs in schools and will respond to pre-submitted questions read by moderators. Scheduled panelists include:

  • Anissa Dennis, HCPSS Chief School Management and Instructional Leadership Officer
  • Tom McNeal, HCPSS Director of Security, Emergency Preparedness and Response
  • Chief Lisa Myers, Howard County Police Department Chief of Police
  • Captain Michael Yetter, Howard County Police Department Community Services Bureau Commander

  • Rebecca Deitz, HoCo.Convo – Youth in Conversation Founder and Director

Details on how to register for and watch the town hall are available online. Questions for the panelists can be submitted by emailing townhall@howardcountymd.gov.

In September, HCPSS Superintendent Michael J. Martirano presented “School Resource Officers in Schools,” to the Howard County Board of Education, initiating the first step in these highly-anticipated, extended conversations. Full details can be found online.

HCPSS invites students, parents and guardians, staff members and community stakeholders to share their input about the SRO program by emailing SROinput@hcpss.org.
