School Resource Officers

In 2002, the Pleasanton Police Department and the Pleasanton Unified School District implemented the School Resource Officer (SRO) program as a joint effort to keep our schools safe and establish a positive police presence in Pleasanton schools.

  • Officers are assigned as school resource officers to handle primary responsibilities at the District’s three high schools and three middle schools.
  • Daily activities include meeting and working with students, teachers, parents, counselors, and school administrators.
  • You may see a police vehicle in our school parking lot on occasion signifying that our officers are visiting and checking in to say "hello" and support staff with advice as well. 
    • The officers provide advice on a variety of topics, take crime reports, handle disputes at the school, act as counselors, conduct follow-up investigations and guest lecture in classes on a variety of topics.
  • After school hours officers often attend sporting events, dances, back-to-school nights and other school activities and events. D.A.R.E. officers visit the campus in the spring to speak to 7th & 8th Graders.
  • Officers also work very closely with leadership classes at the schools and assist the students in coordinating successful events.
  • The 2022-23 Pleasanton Police Department's SROs are Officers Nicole Evans, Rich Trovao and Matt Harvey. They are assigned to the following PUSD schools:
    • Officer Nicole Evans is assigned to all PUSD schools
    • Officer Trovao is assigned to Foothill HS, Pleasanton MS, Harvest Park MS and Hart MS
    • Officer Harvey is assigned to Amador Valley High School, Village High School and Pleasanton MS.
  • We love working with our Pleasanton Police Department and School Resource Officers — We are Better Together.
