Good Afternoon,

Jan 1, 2009 - Nov 1, 2019, the Melbourne Police Department has three complaints regarding our School Resource Officers. One resulted in a Retraining, the other two were Exonerated. There were no lawsuits filed against the Melbourne SROs during this time. Due to the juvenile information contained within, I estimate approx. 1 hour of clerical time for redactions. The estimate is $12.00. Please advise if you would like us to proceed.
Regards,
