The purpose of this project was to document and assess efforts initiated by the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) to enhance integration of law enforcement into school safety. The MPS Division of Security and Safety led a two year pilot initiative (September, 2001 through August, 2003) to increase communication and collaboration across a number of organizations in (1) planning and policy development regarding school safety; (2) development of tailored strategies to enhance safety at target schools; and (3) implementation of the strategies to alleviate specific problems in and around the target schools. The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) was central to each element of the initiative. This report is divided into the following sections: Project Introduction; Phase One: The School Safety Council; Phase Two: District/School Level Planning and Implementation; Evaluation Methodology; Findings; Discussion of Findings; and Conclusion. Appended are: (1) Safety Council Notes; (2) Drug Incidents by School; (3) Examples of GIS Mapping; and (4) 10 Schools Office Referral Data.
