Juvenile Justice & Youth Development

Programs & Grants

School Police

The school police funding category supports initiatives to improve relations between school and police agencies to address the problem of arrests in schools and the need to encourage and support schools and police in diverting students from the juvenile justice system without sacrificing school safety.

The newest initiative of the Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (JJAC) is a training opportunity for school staff called Effective School Staff Interactions with Students and PolicePlease go to Schools & Police Working Together for more information. 

The JJAC has developed a model Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the school superintendent and the police chief as a starting point for local communities to collaborate on this issue and ensure a consistent application of sanctions for school misbehavior.  Download the model MOA and let us know your comments.

The MOA is in a Microsoft Word document.  If you do not have Microsoft Word, click viewers for a small freeware application.  If you are unable to use this format, please contact our office.
