    2022 SRO/SSE Training is in Session

    MCSS staff, along with state and local subject matter experts, are once again in the classroom providing training to the dedicated individuals serving as SROs and SSEs throughout the State. In 2021, MCSS began the work of updating our model SRO and SSE training. The goal of the updates was to expand the program with new and much-needed modules in order to provide deeper training. Working closely with our local and state subject matter experts (SMEs), MCSS expanded training modules on De-escalation, Disability and Diversity Awareness, Implicit Bias, and Restorative Approaches.

    Additionally, we added six new models to the training program including:

    • Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
    • Crisis Intervention
    • Dangers of Devices
    • Normative Adolescent Behaviors
    • Understanding Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    The additions and changes will be built into a professional development class that will be made available to previously trained SROs and SSEs.
