School Resource Officer :
Morris Hills is a quality High School which has a capacity of approximately 1200 students during a daily session. This is the largest concentration of youth anywhere in the Borough and one in which our agency takes a proactive part in helping to foster a good education for our students.
The SRO takes a proactive role within the school, identifying concerns before they become issues. This strategy of prevention is an essential component of the program and one which is paramount to intervention. The daily interaction between the officer and students not only promotes positive relationships between youth and law enforcement but also, fosters an environment of trust, an important factor for kids who may find themselves in need of help at some point.
Officer Scott Haigh is a veteran officer with specific training to handle this important function.
Officer Haigh may be reached during the school day by calling Morris Hills High School at, 973-664-2479 or calling the Rockaway Borough Police Department at, 973-627-1851.
