Juvenile Programs are supervised by the Criminal Investigation Division Sergeant and include the School Resource Officer (SRO) Program and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program.

School Resource Officers:

The SRO program is made possible through a longstanding partnership between the Oshkosh Police Department and the Oshkosh Area School District. Five SROs are each assigned to one or more of the city's public schools with the primary goal of preventing juvenile delinquency through education and positive communication with students. SROs also respond to problems in their assigned schools and assist when unusual events occur at the elementary schools. All of this helps to create a safer learning environment for our children.

There is one SRO assigned to each of the two public high schools. Three other SROs share work among the five middle schools. SROs assist with appropriate classroom lessons on topics such as bullying, Internet safety, and laws involving dating and relationships. SROs also offer lessons on drug and alcohol use consistent with the DARE Program that's taught to fifth graders. During the summer months, SROs assist Detectives or return to patrol assignments.
