In partnership with the City of Fort Scott, USD 234 has added a second School Resource Officer to our schools. The safety of our students and our staff are a top priority for our District. This expands our existing SRO program to help build relationships, safety, and education. We welcome SRO James Birket to our Tiger family!
A little background from Officer Birket:
I am James Birket. I grew up in McPherson, Kansas near Wichita, Kansas. I graduated from Pittsburg State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice Studies. I became a Police Officer with the City of Fort Scott in 2012. Since becoming a police officer I have been a Patrol Corporal and am currently a Patrol Sergeant until I move into the School Resource Officer role.
As a Police Officer I have earned instructor certifications in several areas that will assist with this position. I have assisted with training new officers as a field training officer.
I look forward to the new challenges that come with this position.
