School Resource Officer

Gobles Tiger Parents/Guardians:

On February 13, 2023, the Gobles Board of Education approved the hiring of a School Resource Officer (SRO). Gobles Public Schools has partnered with the Van Buren County Sheriff's Department to provide a full time deputy to the district.

Our district is excited to welcome Deputy Whitmore to our schools and the Tiger Team. Funding for the SRO was made available through the State Police, along with government funding. Deputy Whitmore will serve the district full-time, with the availability to attend events as scheduled.

As Gobles Public Schools continues to look at ways to provide a safe learning environment for our students, having an SRO is a vital piece. We look forward to Deputy Whitmore building relationships with our students, staff, and community.
