Officer Steve Corll is our SRO at both Niles Middle and Primary schools during the school year. He has been a sworn law enforcement officer since 2009 working for the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department, various schools, and the Niles City Police Department before coming to our district. Prior to law enforcement, Officer Corll served overseas with the U.S. Army during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He says his experiences have led him to develop a passion for this special type of policing.
"I have 4 children of my own, and fully understand the importance of providing a safe and healthy learning environment for our kids. Rest assured, I will assist the school administration however possible to help ensure this goal is met. Throughout the year, your children will likely see me on a regular basis. As a School Resource Officer, I may be utilized in many different roles. Mentoring students to keep them out of trouble, presenting on special topics, and simply being a positive role model, are all routine duties I will have. However, please be advised that first and foremost I’m a police officer. The most important duty of all, and one that will never deviate, is to help keep our schools safe. When appropriate, I will enforce the laws of both Niles City and The State of Ohio." - Steve Corll, Niles City Schools SRO
