School Mobile Assessment and Resource Team (SMART)


The School Mobile Assessment and Resource Team (S.M.A.R.T.), a detail operated and supervised through the Orange County Sheriff Department, can be utilized in situations and incidents at schools related to violence, threats, possession and/or use of weapons, bizarre and unstable behaviors, and suicidal statements or tendencies.  The S.M.A.R.T. unit works in conjunction with school officials, the probation department, the district attorney’s office, and mental health agencies to help resolve safety issues and concerns involving all persons associated to schools within the jurisdiction of the Orange County Sheriff Department.


The unit provides services and resources, including threat assessments, criminal investigation, referrals for counseling, and case management where deemed appropriate.   The goal of S.M.A.R.T. is to evaluate and assess each incident individually, effectively resolve the matter through the least intrusive means available (while still maintaining safety and security to the school), and ultimately return the staff and students to their daily routine.  Contact with S.M.A.R.T. can be made at anytime.
