This study examined the relationships between SROs’ training and behaviors and student outcomes. Specifically, the relationships between SRO training and use of Restorative Practices and Social Emotional Learning and Student Perceptions of Safety and ratings of School Climate were examined. Results indicate that in schools where SROs use these practices more frequently, students report feeling safer and a more positive school climate. However, these results were not consistent across school years and were found cross-sectionally. Outcomes of this study suggest that SROs should be considered when school-wide interventions are implemented.
