Evaluation of the Courtlink Auto Crime Prevention Program (CACPP) for Senior Elementary and Alternative School Students in British Columbia.
Curtis, Charles K.; Meehan, George
This study evaluated the Courtlink Auto Crime Prevention Program (CACPP), a 13-hour curriculum for senior elementary school and secondary school alternative program at-risk students in British Columbia, Canada. The program provides students with information about automobile crime and its costs, consequences, and prevention. It promotes positive attitudes and behaviors regarding auto crime prevention. The evaluation identified students', teachers', and administrators' attitudes about the program, determined the degree to which the program increased students' knowledge about auto crime, and examined how the program influenced positive attitudes about not committing auto crime and about auto crime victims, auto crime prevention, and the provincial court system. Researchers reviewed literature from professional journals, the ERIC system, two Internet search engines, and the libraries of two universities but found no references to auto crime prevention programs. Data from student, teacher, and administrator surveys indicated that respondents were very positive and highly endorsed the program, feeling it was necessary in their schools. They reported improvements in students' knowledge about and attitudes toward auto crime and the court system. Three appendices include phase III research questions, phase IV research questions (knowledge and attitudes), and study instruments. (Contains 48 tables and 42 references.) (SM)
