School resource officers busy on snow days

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - School resource officers in Craighead County don't get to enjoy a snow day when the students do.

Chief Deputy Rick Thomas said the resource officers are all deputy sheriffs.

He said if the schools are out, then these officers patrol the county or pick up prisoners.

"School resource officers, SROs as we call them, are deputy sheriffs. When school is out, they come back to the patrol division," Thomas said. "Today [Thursday], I understand we have one SRO in school and the other three SROs are on the road picking up prisoners today, patrolling areas of the county as a regular deputy."
