ETHICAL—Jennifer Fordham, Police Officer/SRO

“It is impressive how Jenny handles every interaction and situation.  The position of school resource officer calls for a rare combination of sensitivity and toughness while dealing with students, parents and teachers.  Jenny has that combination.  Interactions with students can be deeply personal, emotional, and frustrating on many different levels.  Jenny always displays a calm, professional demeanor as she listens to the involved parties, investigates the situation, and addresses the situation with the appropriate solution and advice.  Jenny champions every assignment or task with diligence and passion, easily representing the police department as a true professional in so many areas.  She is a credit to the profession.”
