School Resource Officer (SRO)
At C.W. Ruckel Middle School, the safety of students and staff is of the utmost importance. The Okaloosa County School Board and the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office have teamed up in order to maintain a safe learning environment in our schools. A full time Deputy Sheriff, known as the School Resource Officer (SRO), has been assigned to each middle and high school campus. The SRO for Ruckel Middle School is not only responsible for the safety of the students and staff, but also mediates student/student and student/ parent conflicts. The officer is available for conferences related to law enforcement and crime prevention. The officer gives classroom presentations on law related issues, and hosts small group discussions. Deputy O'Sullivan can be reached during school hours at 833-4142. You may email her here.
