In 2018, Mountain Brook Schools Superintendent Dr. Dicky Barlow and the school’s Board of Education collaborated with the city of Mountain Brook to place an SRO on every school’s campus. Mountain Brook SROs have been specially trained to work in a school setting. Today, they received recognition for their work.
