The Public Safety Sales Tax that Branson residents passed in 2017 has allowed the Branson Police Department to hire an additional School Resource Officer (SRO) for Branson’s Cedar Ridge Campus. Another SRO will be hired in February, for the Buchanan Campus, which will mean there will soon be officers at all four Branson School District campuses.
Officer Corey Hodzic started at the Cedar Ridge campus January 22. He has been a Patrol Officer with the Branson Police Department since 2014. Officer Hodzic has been looking forward to working at the Cedar Ridge Campus and interacting with the students and staff.
Building relationships between young people and the police department is the ultimate goal of the SRO program as well as providing for the safety and security of our children.
