A Riverton Police Department School Resource Officer said he will accept a nomination to be Interim Director of the Region 8 Division of the National School Resource Officers Association (NSRO).
Cody Myers was informed of the nomination this past month. Myers is the SRO for Riverton Middle School. He is also an instructor for Fremont County BOCES Military Science program at Riverton High School. Myers will retain his position in Riverton, although he said he may have to cut back in other outside activities.
Myers is no stranger to Region 8 as he was named the SRO of the year in that region in 2010. The Region 8 area is comprised of 10 states, including: Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Colorado,, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
“He was also awarded the WREN Solutions Scholarship,” said RPD Captain Eric Murphy. “Officer Myers’ dedication to the Riverton Police Department and the kids of the community continue to be recognized by NASRO.”
Myers said he would serve in the interim position through July, at which time he would decide if he would seek election to the post.
The NASRO is a not-for-profit organization for school based law enforcement officers, school administrators, and school security/safety professionals. Its members work as partners to protect students, school faculty and staff and the schools they attend. According to its website, there are over 6,000 members of the group.
