School Based Police Officer

 

​The School Based Police Officer (SBPO) works 5 days a week at Maroochydore State High School. Parents and the community can contact our SBPO via the school office and students can access the SBPO anytime in A Block.

Role of the School Based Police Officer (SBPO)
Our SBPO participates in the education of our students and is an integral part of the current approach to policing, which places a greater emphasis on police engaging with the community and working collaboratively to provide effective policing services.

Through the SBPO, Maroochydore SHS and QLD police have a positive partnership which enables our school community to identify and develop appropriate community safety and crime prevention strategies. These programs address local issues and increase educational outcomes for students by creating environments that support student welfare and learning.

The SBPO also assists in contributing to the overall health and wellbeing of the school community by supporting students at risk of offending or becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
