The MPD currently has three School Resource Officers (SROs) assigned to the public high schools in the City of Missoula in School District 1.
Officer Rod Swanson works as the Police Departments School Safety Officer. Officer Swanson is assigned to Hellgate Elementary.
Additionally, they dedicate time each week to spend time in the district's nine grade schools.
During the summer when school is not in session these five officers break out the mountain bikes and patrol the parks, trails, and downtown.
The five officers are supervised by the Quality of Life Sergeant, Dustin Delridge.
