Collaboration between law enforcement officers and schools is an important step in increasing school safety. The concept of having Valparaiso police officers involved with schools stems from the practice of community policing. Community policing utilizes the assistance of community members in identifying and prioritizing problems and developing solutions. Focusing on early intervention activities, our school safety program partners law enforcement officers with teachers and students in order to promote a more safe and secure setting.
