|School Resource Officer A.T. Griffiths
Page High School
Since June 16, 1997, Officer A.T. Griffiths has served the Greensboro Police Department in a variety of roles: Crime Abatement Team, Vice/Narcotics Division, Senior Training Officer and now as a School Resource Officer.
Griffiths recognizes the obligation he has to the students he serves. For many he is a mentor, a positive role model, a substitute father, and a friend to talk to. He tries to teach teenagers the right way to do things so they do not end up in the criminal justice system. Being an SRO is Griffith's chance to see a need and fulfill it. He says, "I can see where I can make a positive influence on people and help them."
He humorously gives this advice to his students: "If you like your stuff, lock it up and secure it; don't leave it unattended."
In addition to serving GPD, Griffiths is proud to have served for seven years in the United States Army as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division.
