Law Enforcement Education in the Middle Grades: Police Student Relations.
McDonald, Phyllis P.
This booklet describes the Police/Student Relations (PSR) project, which is a new approach to delinquency prevention. The method which is outlined used parts of familiar program plans, but takes advantage of natural abilities and characteristics which allow children to continue functioning in a healthy way, changing their attitudes before they become involved in the juvenile justice system. After describing the program, the booklet devotes a whole chapter to explaining why this project is effective where so many others have failed. Research results of the PSR are reported, and instructions are given for ways to start such a program in a new neighborhood. Finally, a list of problems the teacher might do well to anticipate is presented. Samples and excerpts from the PSR instructional materials are included in the appendix. (Author/BP)
