TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  New teachers and students will not be the only new faces on school campuses this year.  For the first time in seven years Tucson Unified School District will be using student resource officers. 

Pueblo High School will be one of the many schools that will have a resource officer.  According to Tucson Police the officer will not be on campus today, but thanks to state funding it will be happening soon.  

Oro Valley has kept up with its student resource officer program over the years, now finally for TUSD state funding will allow eight schools to have an officer on campus.  The schools will be made up of seven high schools and one middle school.  

Tucson Police are saying these resource officers will be full time police officers, who will handle not only discipline calls, but reports of abuse or molestation where students are involved.  

Student resource officers will also help with education on the campuses, mainly through drug and alcohol classes for high school students and stranger danger lessons for younger students at the middle school.
