School Resource Officer information
The District’s two School Resource Officers, Jake Conilogue and Jim Cronk, are Lander Police officers trained to work in the school environment and assigned full time to the schools within Fremont County School District #1. They perform a multitude of tasks both directly and indirectly related to law enforcement. They have been trained to operate from a triad approach as Law Enforcement Officer, Teacher, and Counselor.
The first and foremost duty of a School Resource Officer is to function as a law enforcement officer, providing safety, investigative and enforcement services to the school community.
As a teacher, a School Resource Officer is available to provide and/or arrange for lectures, presentations and hands on classes on a variety of law related topics to educate both students and adults.
School Resource Officers can provide informal counseling services to students and their families. Oftentimes, the student will be referred to a licensed professional counselor or agency.
