School Resource Officer

Welcome to my web page. My name is Dana Woodford and I am the School Resource Officer (SRO) for the Redwood Valley School District. I am employed by the Redwood Falls Police Department and have been a police officer for 24 years. I have worked patrol for 9 years and am currently in my 15th year as SRO here at Redwood Valley.

My duties in the district include being a mentor, a teacher and a law enforcement officer. I enjoy interacting with the students in the hall and spend time in the classrooms teaching students on law enforcement topics. I also enforce criminal violations that may occur during the school year and spend time with students in a proactive manner to try and resolve the issues before they become criminal. I have an open door policy and urge students, staff and parents to stop by with any issues they may have or just to say hello.

I am married to my husband Derek and we have three boys, Chris, Cole and Carson and we also enjoy our granddaughter Olivia. In my free time, I enjoy spending evenings and weekends watching our boys play baseball, football and basketball.   

I look forward to another safe year here at Redwood Valley.
Go Cards!!!
