Meet our SROs

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.
