Supervision & Management of School-Based Policing Programs


This course has been developed for the law enforcement supervisor/manager and the school district coordinator or supervisor that has or will have the responsibility of selecting, monitoring, supervising or evaluating a school-based policing program. Input from officers, managers, and school site administrators from across the country have assisted in the creation and development of this course. The course will assist in the development, implementation, and improvement of school-based policing and school resource officer programs. There will be time built into the program to allow attendees to identify specific needs they may have and to work with the group to identify workable solutions for these issues. An additional goal of this course is to create a more standardized approach to gathering of statistical data used to evaluate school-based police officers and programs. Any person that is interested in the development of a strong school-based policing program will benefit form attending this course.

Characteristics of a Safe School

This NEW twenty-four hour course has been designed to develop and enhance skills used by administrators, teachers, deans, security officers and School Resource Officers.  Although most schools are safe, the violence that occurs in our communities has found its way onto many of our campuses. However, if we understand what leads to violence and work to identify students that are at risk we can intervene before violence occurs.  We know that involvement of caring adults and positive role models are effective tools in violence prevention.  When schools and law enforcement work together we can make our schools safer. In this course we will discuss best practices that help schools, communities, administrators, teachers, families and students recognize warning signs so students can get the help they need before it is too late.
