Approval of the 2021-2022 School Resource Officer Agreement between the City of Redmond and the Lake Washington School District


OVERVIEW STATEMENT:
recommendation
Renewal of the 2020-2021 School Resource Officer agreement between the Lake Washington School District ("District") and the City of Redmond ("City"). This is a continuation of the service the Redmond Police Department currently provides to the District and allows for funding to be received in consideration for services provided. In the past, an SRO has been assigned to the High School and Middle Schools, as staffing allowed. The District and City have agreed to pilot a "community-based" assignment model in which SROs are assigned to multiple schools/geographical areas providing broad SRO-related services to all schools in the district.
