GRIT is often a better indicator of success than factors such as IQ or family income. The Woodridge Police Department’s GRIT program will highlight perseverance, hard work, and a drive to better oneself – lessons that can have a long-lasting impact to achieve a higher quality of life.
School Resource Officers
School Resource Officers are sworn law enforcement officers responsible for providing security and crime prevention services in schools. The School Resource Officer is Jeff Bean (firstname.lastname@example.org, 630-960-8962).
School Resource Officers are also available to speak at PTO meetings and local community groups upon request. For example, some topics include cyber bullying, internet safety, and other current trends / issues that help to keep the children of our community safe.
