School Resource Deputies
The School Resource Unit currently serves 49 schools within the district. A total of 22 deputies are assigned to the unit. Deputies are given primary assignments at each high school, middle school and four of the elementary schools. Members are also given secondary school assignments and respond as requested. The unit is supervised by one lieutenant and two sergeants.
Our main objective is to enhance students’ educational opportunities by promoting a safe and secure learning environment. In addition to prevention programs, deputies also teach the basic understanding of the Criminal Justice System and the role of a law enforcement officer and their duties. They also take law enforcement action as required within their assigned school.
School Safety Hotline - The Leon County Sheriff's Office working in conjunction with the Florida Sheriff's Association operates a school safety hotline. The hotline promotes the early reporting criminal activity, allowing individuals to call anonymously on a toll free phone line. The toll-free number is 1-877-723-2728.
