Law Enforcement School Programs. Fact Sheet
Arkansas Safe Schools Initiative Division
The school shooting incidents during the decade of the 1990's prompted an increase of law enforcement presence in schools. The School Violence Resource Center (SVRC) at the Criminal Justice Institute (CJI) University of Arkansas System undertook a project to determine what programs law enforcement agencies currently provide in their local schools to assist with violence prevention and/or intervention. This paper summarizes the law enforcement programs survey project and its findings. [The concept for this project was based upon the work by Colleen Ryan and Frederick Matthews (1995) entitled "A National Directory of Exemplary School-Based Police Programs to Combat Youth Violence".]
