Along with being a CLEET certified peace officer through the state of Oklahoma, he has received a basic SRO certification from NASRO (National Association of School Resource Officers), in addition to continuing education from the organization. He has attended multiple active shooter training‘s and campus security symposiums administered by the FBI.
Officer Rhoden is stationed on campus throughout the school year. He also conducts classes for elementary and secondary students to educate them on special topics such as the dangers of alcohol and drugs, and safety issues on campus. He continues to foster positive relationships between law-enforcement and students.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Officer Rhoden.
