INFORMATION
Training Overview

How are you using police at your school? Determine what presence is necessary today.

As the 2022–23 school year begins, some schools are reinstating police presence on their campuses after seeing violence and theft increase since removing resource officers in 2020 and 2021. During National Violence Prevention Month, now is an ideal time to revisit the question of police in schools.

As you balance community sentiment with student safety, you need to understand if law enforcement officers make schools safer or escalate disciplinary incidents and lead to more problems. You must review the terms of existing contracts, legal implications, and effective alternatives.
