The FBI Crime Resistance Program. Technical Assistance Bulletin 24.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
To promote the concept that citizen involvement and responsibility for crime resistance are prime factors in law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) assists local agencies in developing programs to encourage citizen participation. One facet of this program is directed toward educating students about their vulnerability to crime and their responsibility in preventing victimization. Two school systems have developed crime resistance programs following the FBI concept. These courses, covering such topics as law and authority, criminality, the justice system, precautions against crime, and citizen rights and responsibilities, have been extremely well received and are seen as reducing victimization by improving the students' attitudes towards police and the law and encouraging acceptance of their responsibility in crime resistance.
