Identifying Your School's Crime Problems: Simple Steps That Precede Costly Action. An IRC Monograph for Practitioners.
Rubel, Robert J., Ed.
This monograph is intended to provide guidance to schools and school districts in two areas: in the identification and analysis of crime problems in schools and in the evaluation of security programs. Part 1 provides simple steps necessary to avoid problems in data collection that might cause confusion and misinterpretation of student violence problems. According to this section, the process of collecting crime information includes defining, reporting, and analyzing illegal acts committed on school grounds. The second part of the report centers on "pre-evaluation" issues, the preliminary issues that must be considered before a security program can begin its evaluation design. The focus is on the users of the evaluation materials, the kind of information needed by those users, and how the findings should be presented. (Author/JM)
