School Prevention Resource Officer Program

The Weirton Police Department has two School Prevention Resource Officers (P.R.O.), one assigned to Weir High School and one Weir Middle School. These officers establish trust with the students and act as a liaison between the students and staff. Duties include teaching classes that are nontraditional such as laws pertaining to juveniles, arrest procedures, search and seizure, driving under influence risks (D.U.I.), etc. These officers have become role models in our school system and are a valuable resource to the Weirton Police Department.
