Dallas School District along with Dallas Police Department are pleased to announce the selection of Senior Officer Brittney Crocker as the new School Resource Officer for the school district.  Funding for the re-establishment of a school resource officer is the result of a recent agreement between the city and the school district to split the cost of the position, 50:50.  A school resource officer was last employed in Dallas School District in 2009, when the position was eliminated due to budget cuts. 

Senior Officer Brittney Crocker was born and raised in Philomath, Oregon and grew up participating in sports and playing in the school bands.  She continued her education at Southern Oregon University where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. After college, Brittney was hired by the Philomath School District, where she worked as middle school media assistant and coached 7th grade basketball. In October of 2013, she was hired as police officer with the City of Toledo, Oregon. In July of 2016, she was hired as a police officer with the City of Dallas, where she serves as a Field Training Officer, Drug Recognition Expert, and most recently, School Resource Officer. Brittney has two children and enjoys camping, backpacking, CrossFit, and spending time with her family.

Senior Officer Crocker shared, “I am looking forward to building positive relationships with students, district staff, and community members and working hard to foster, and maintain a safe educational environment.”

In response to this selection, Dallas Police Chief Simpson said, “I’m excited that we are able to embark on this collaborative endeavor with the school district to improve the great professional relationship we already enjoy. Having an active and positive presence within our schools is one of the proven methods to build good police-community relationships that thrive.”

Dallas School District Superintendent Bellando also commented on this selection. “Building positive relationships with all students is central to an effective School Resource Officer. I firmly believe that Senior Officer Crocker has the skill set, educational and law enforcement experiences to build these relationships. She will be a welcoming presence to all students.”

Senior Officer Crocker will begin as SRO on September 1, 2022, and in time for the 2022-23 school year. She will be present in all schools in the district with a focus of her efforts at the elementary grade levels.
