Deputy returns to his high school as school resource officer

When Zach Bregel graduated from Emerald Ridge High School in 2002, he didn’t know he’d be returning one day as the school resource officer.

With ten years as a Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy, Bregel is one of three additional police officers hired as a school resource officer dedicated to keeping Puyallup students and staff safe at school.
This brings the total to six SRO’s and 17 full-time campus security officers in Puyallup schools.





 Bregel was introduced as the new police officer on staff at Emerald Ridge and Glacier View during an all-staff collaboration session. He presented Lockdown Emergency Preparedness Training for Schools K-12. The comprehensive safety training prepares staff for different types of lockdowns, the safest place to shelter within a room during a lockdown, and provides a full discussion of what to do during critical safety events.
