School Resource Officers (SRO) are Denver police officers assigned to Denver Public High Schools. While safety, in and around the school, is of the upmost importance for the SRO, so is connecting with students, families, and staff to build and foster positive relationships. Together, we strive to maintain a secure and nurturing space for education to thrive.
District 3 School Resource Officers:
Officer Tim Cueva - Thomas Jefferson High School
Officer Timothy Cueva is thrilled to return to Thomas Jefferson High School (TJHS) where he previously worked as a School Resource Officer (SRO) for 12 years. With more than 22 years as a Denver Police Officer, Officer Cueva serves as an SRO with the goal of bridging the gap between youth and families in the community he serves, being a positive role model for the students and connecting with school staff in a supportive manner. Officer Cueva’s love for TJHS also stems from his daughter being a TJ alum and his previous time there as the tennis coach. He is excited to be back in the school and re-establish previous relationships while building new ones with the students and staff.
