Morris Knolls School Resource Officer

bio imagePolice Officer Michael Ambrose

I began my law enforcement career in 2012, when I was hired by the Denville Township Police Department. During this time, I served in the patrol division where I developed an appreciation for community policing and school security. In August of 2019, I was assigned as the new School Resource Officer (SRO) of Morris Knolls High School.

As the SRO of Morris Knolls, my primary duty is to protect the staff and student body. I look forward to being a fair and positive role model for each of the students. I will always maintain an open door policy, where students may speak to me privately and be ensured that all interactions have a positive and trusting conclusion.

My ultimate goal is to continue promoting a proactive approach to school security. Every student should always feel safe and comfortable in their learning environment.
