Officer Binkley has been heavily invested in the Community during his Law Enforcement career and is looking forward to continuing his involvement with the Wilmington City Schools as an SRO.  He hopes to make a positive influence on the students and serve as a positive role model. 

Whether talking to students in the hallway or delivering a presentation in the classroom, SROs are embedded in the educational fabric of the schools they serve. We are confident that Office Binkley is uniquely qualified to make a positive impact in our schools as our SRO, and we are excited to introduce him to our students, staff, parents, and community.
