The Berkshire Local Schools is pleased to announce that Deputy Brian Haller has become the District’s new, official School Resource Officer (S.R.O) beginning the week of November 26, 2018. Deputy Haller will serve all three buildings throughout the Berkshire Schools, with a permanent office at the Jr. and Sr. High School. The purpose of Deputy Haller being onboarded as the District’s S.R.O. is multifold, including the additional safety and security presence in all buildings, serving as a positive role model for students and providing supplemental programming on a wide range of topics such as crime prevention, drug and alcohol awareness and Internet safety. Deputy Haller intends to visit each of the three school buildings in the District on a routine, weekly basis. He is excited about this new role, particularly since he has served in similar capacities in other nearby school districts and is eager to jumpstart Berkshire’s program. Deputy Haller has 23 years of law enforcement experience and is certain to greatly assist the District in adding another layer of security in this new, ever-evolving climate of school district safety. Thank you to the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office for their help in making this addition of Deputy Brian Haller as Berkshire’s new S.R.O. possible.
