Meet School Resource Officer, New Prague Police Officer Zach Ambroz

School Resource Officer, New Prague Police Officer Zach Ambroz. Students at New Prague Area Schools have been seeing a new face as they come to school this year. New Prague Police Officer Zach Ambroz has taken over as school resource officer (SRO) replacing 17-year veteran John Madigan.

Ambroz is a two-year veteran of the New Prague Police force and a 2008 graduate of the New Prague School District. Prior to coming to the New Prague Police Department, Zach worked at the Renville County Sheriff’s office and the Lonsdale Police Department. Zach has been working as an officer since 2013.

Superintendent Tim Dittberner stated, "We have partnered for many years with the City of New Prague to offer this service to our schools. We know the importance of having an SRO on call that is building positive relationships with our students and staff. Zach is a graduate of the New Prague School District so he is familiar with not only our schools but also our community."

Ambroz remarked, "Being an SRO in the District has always been a goal of mine. I am very excited to help educate our students and to bring a calm and safe environment for the school buildings."
