The National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) today announced that it has extended the entry deadline for the 2010 Wren Solutions School Resource Officer (SRO) Scholarship Award. Nominations will now be accepted until May 1, 2010. The award is part of a $10,000 donation that Wren, providers of physical security solutions that create safe learning environments, pledged over a four year time period.
The annual scholarship is intended to help SROs further their education, thereby bringing even more expertise and security strategies to protect the schools they serve. This year’s winner will be announced at NASRO’s 20th Annual National Conference to be held August 2-6, 2010 in Louisville, Kentucky.
The award will be offered and administered through NASRO. In order to be considered for the scholarship, applicants must be a current member of NASRO and enrolled in an associate's or bachelor's degree program in law enforcement, criminal justice or a related field deemed appropriate by the NASRO Scholarship Committee such as business, public administration or psychology.
At the time of applying, candidates must be a sworn law enforcement officer. In selecting the award winner, the nomination committee will consider each applicant’s contributions to their SRO program, agency, NASRO or the community. Applicants are also asked to address how they utilized technology to enhance the safety and security of people, property and information.
