Roanoke County Police have submitted a request for grant funding from the Dept. of Criminal Justice Services to help pay for additional SROs. If awarded, the grant will provide partial funding for one year for an additional SRO to be assigned to an elementary school. The SROs are employees of the Roanoke County Police Department and applications for this grant are submitted by local police departments. The School Board has agreed, however, to fund the equipment costs for this position as well as provide the local portion of the salary for this position.
