School Crime and Violence: Problems and Solutions.
Grealy, Joseph I.
This volume focuses on school crime and programs to fight it. The book begins by relating serious incidents of school crime that involve students, teachers, administrators, facilities, and equipment. It also describes a school security program that the author maintains can be emulated by any school district regardless of size. It informs school districts about relevant local, state, and federal legislation; programs dealing with school crime; and how to obtain funding for equipment, training, technical assistance, and programs to fight school crime. The volume also gives details on successful programs recommended by Congress. These programs utilize early intervention, alternative education, counseling and guidance, a sound relationship between policy and the school, architectural and design techniques, alternatives to juvenile detention, and school security techniques to minimize school crime.
