2018 Annual Training Conference

  • Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Bonita Springs

The Florida Association of School Resource Officers provides the most advanced and comprehensive training for school-based police and school administrators. FASRO is the oldest school policing organization in the United States and currently has over 600 members. FASRO seeks quality presenters nationwide to address current issues facing school safety, security, and crime prevention.

More importantly, FASRO provides Florida specific training . This year’s annual training conference will focus on active shooter training for both law enforcement and school personnel. FASRO is pleased to announce that Don Alwes from the National Tactical Officers Association will be our featured speaker. FASRO also offers many other classes to include SRO Single Person Response to Active Shooters presented by the Florida SWAT Association, Pulse Night Club Shooting and Response with Deputy Chief Rolon Orlando Police Department, Boston Marathon Bombing with Retired Chief Daniel Linskey Boston Police Department, and Florida Legal Updates with Assistant State Attorney Maria Schneider 17 Judicial Circuit.

FASRO will continue to partner with the Florida Office of the Attorney General to provide Basic SRO training for new school resource officers at our annual conference. This year we have doubled the capacity for the upcoming Basic class as well as we have added an Advanced SRO class. FASRO has also partnered with the Florida Association of School Administrators to present a 1-day training for education personnel, which will have national speakers Curt Lavarello speaking on School Safety Assessments and Don Alwes on School Administrators response to Active Shooters.

With the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School FASRO is more focused than ever of protecting our most precious resource, the children of the state of Florida.

Note: FASRO will be hosting two Basic SRO classes this year which will be taught concurrently during the Conference. People can register for the FASRO Conference or the SRO Basic Class, but not both as the SRO Basic Class has a 40 hour course requirement in order to complete the Basic SRO Certification. SRO Basic Class Attendees will be able to attend FASRO Conference nightly activities as well as being eligible for Conference giveaways.

Note: Please register under your own Agency email address for important updates and your training certificates, upon successful completion.
