The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office now has a deputy assigned to every campus in the Cherokee County school system. The School Resource Officer (SRO) program began on a dedicated basis three years ago. According to Sheriff Jeff Shaver, the program is made possible as a cooperative effort between the Board of Education, County Commission and Sheriff's Office.  The program would not be possible without the cooperation of all three entities.

Sheriff Shaver said, "It was my vision years ago to have this program in Cherokee County.  My Chief Deputy, Josh Summerford, and I worked diligently for a long time to make this happen.  We are proud of our SROs and the great work they do and we appreciate the leadership that Lt. Kelley gives to the program everyday.  We are excited to now have someone assigned to every school."

LT. Jordan Kelly-Centre Elementary

Dep. Floyd Brooks-Centre Middle

Dep. Kasey West-Cherokee County High School

Dep. Tracy Nelson-Cherokee County Career & Tech
