    SRO gets priority for time off during holidays because he CANT take time off any other time.
    It may be different with your agency, but around here those kinds of special assignments are often highly coveted and competed for. It sounds like the OP's agency is pretty seniority-based, which may make it hard for them to nab something like that, even if their agency offers it.

    I also find that younger/newer officers are less interested in things like SRO, preferring more action-oriented roles like patrol. I typically see those specialty slots with more 'regular' hours populated by older/more experienced officers, especially once they start having families.

    All that said, it wouldn't hurt those in similar situations to investigate these types of positions and, if it's that important, start doing/learning the things needed to be the best candidate when a spot opens.
