Training Overview

Schools continue removing police officers – will you? Discover recent incidents and the growing trend.

One year after George Floyd’s death, the trend of removing police from schools continues. This month, Alexandria, Virginia ended its school resource officer program and relocated almost $800,000 to initiatives to promote students’ mental health. Somerville, Massachusetts suspended school police programs after school leaders called the police on a 6-year-old boy. Dozens of other schools and districts across the country have taken similar steps to eliminate police presence on their campuses.

As you balance community sentiment with student safety, you need to understand if law enforcement officers make schools safer or escalate disciplinary incidents and lead to more problems. You must review the terms of existing contracts, legal implications, and effective alternatives.
