Newtown Middle Youth Resource Officer

NPD Direct: 203-426-5841

NMS Direct:  203-270-6103



The Newtown Police Department as a whole provides the town with any and all police services and responses.  The School Resource Officer (SRO) is assigned to the Youth Bureau and acts as a Liaison between the schools and the police department.  This is accomplished by assigning an Officer to the Middle School, High School, and the Reed Intermediate School.  

The primary role of the SRO is as a Law Enforcement Officer.  The SRO proactively addresses safety and security issues to maintain a safe learning environment for the students as well as for the teachers. 

Secondly, the SRO is a Law-Related Counselor who provides guidance on law-related issues to students and acts as a link to support services inside and outside the school environment. 

Thirdly, the SRO is a Law-Related Education Teacher, who can provide the school with an additional educational resource by sharing their knowledge and experience in the classroom related to law enforcement topics. 

We are very fortunate to have Officer Pereira as our SRO here at Newtown NMS! He is always visible, and friendly with all staff and students.  Do not hesitate to contact him with questions or concerns.
