Description:

The paper opens with a look at school violence. It discusses the prevalence of such events as well as what type of youth risk behavior is being performed. A large section of the paper is on resource officers and the police. It argues they are becoming more involved in combating the violence. It concludes that with an increase in technology and resource officers, the amount of juvenile crime on school campuses would decrease, or at least become manageable.

From the Paper:

"There are many benefits of having a resource officer in schools. Students, parents, and administrators feel safer and students can get a better understanding of law enforcement and can make better decisions about their actions. With law enforcement taking the majority of the responsibility, administrators and teachers have more time to focus on being educators and giving students the best education possible. Not only can Resource Officers handle disruptive and violent incidents they can also provide services such as drug education, conflict resolution, violence education and also serve as mentors to the students that they come into contact with on a regular basis."
