School Resource Officer
Officer Jeremy Brooks- Humphreys County Sheriff's Department
Our school is fortunate to have an excellent School Resource Officer (SRO) on campus. The SRO is a certified law enforcement officer with the Humphreys County Sheriff's Department. The main job of the SRO is to help make sure Waverly Central High School has a safe educational environment. Although the SRO will not act as an administrator for the purposes of discipline, he will assist the administration in the investigation of criminal acts that may occur on campus. These criminal acts may include, but are not limited to, possession of or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fighting, bullying, or harassment of any kind, vandalism, filing false reports (fake fire alarms/bomb threats), theft, possession of a weapon, etc. The SRO will file criminal charges against any student who commits a crime at school. It is the intent of the faculty and staff that WCHS be a safe and drug-free institution, and the administration will use every available tool to achieve this goal.
The SRO may also act as a resource for students, staff, or community members who need assistance. He acts as a liaison between the school and the city and county law enforcement officials. His role here is to protect and help students.
