LAUSD Welcomes School Safety Initiative

Published: September 27, 2007

LOS ANGELES – Twenty middle and high schools located in high-crime areas in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will be evaluated by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to determine if more officers need to be placed around the campuses.

The school safety initiative will allow the LAPD and campus police to discover what sorts of crimes are being committed within a mile of the campuses by using computer-generated data. The information will determine whether or not more officials should be deployed to the campuses.

Each quarter, school officials and parents will receive crime statistics from those high-crime areas.

In addition, the LAPD is partnering with Los Angeles mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, and launching “Project Elementoring,” which requires first time officers to monitor an elementary school. Also, parents are encouraged to walk their children to school with the national program “Walking School Bus.”
