Division of Special Operations

Welcome to the Division of Special Operations

The Division of Special Operations consists of specialized units and officers who support the mission of the Hillsboro Police Department.  This Division includes our School Resource Officer program and evidence custodians.

School Resource Officer (SRO) Program

The Hillsboro Police Department currently has two officers assigned as School Resource Officers for the Hillsboro R-3 School District.  The SRO Program is designed to promote positive relationships and interactions with law enforcement while also keeping the school campus secure for students and faculty.

Officer Dean Rodgers, DSN 126

Officer Shelby Cornett, DSN 125

Evidence Custodians

Our Evidence Custodians ensure that all evidence seized by officers through the course of their investigations is packaged and stored properly, and coordinate with the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Lab to test any lab evidence.  Evidence custodians also facilitate the release or destruction of evidence once a case has been cleared through the court system.
