Role of Law Enforcement in Public School Safety: A National Survey   [open pdf - 5MB]

"The purpose of this study was to develop an accurate description of the current involvement of law enforcement in schools. Based on results from a national survey of schools and law enforcement agencies, this report identifies the range of roles played by law enforcement and factors related to these roles. This study also describes the level and frequency of police involvement in schools. Additionally, in-depth case studies of fourteen schools and the law enforcement agencies that serve those schools are presented. The findings from these visits include more detailed information about school problems, school/law enforcement relations, security measures, and the role of law enforcement in public schools."
