On Tuesday evening, trustees with the Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) voted to discontinue the School Resource Officer program.  The Guelph Police Service respects the board’s decision.

We are committed to ensuring the safety of our schools and to having positive, proactive engagements with youth and our community.  We will be meeting with the UGDSB to determine how we can continue to deliver safety training along with other presentations in accordance with the board’s requests and requirements.

We look forward to working collaboratively with the UGDSB and our community to develop programs and initiatives which will allow us to best serve our diverse community.
