The paper employs research and a collection and compilation of data to study the topic of how to implement safety programs in schools. The writer first outlines the problem, gives an explanation for the research, then reviews the literature on the topic, and summarizes with an analysis of the methodology necessary to come to thorough conclusions with regards to the future implementation of security systems.

From the Paper:

"While the outcomes of violent behavior are the most dramatic, they are far from being the only adverse outcomes of criminal behaviors by young people in the United States in the contemporary period. The downward trends periodically reported by governmental agencies in relation to criminal behavior by young people tend to be received skeptically by the general public for two major reasons. First, the downward trends typically are based on percentage reductions that, when translated into absolute numbers, reflect little change in the actual frequency of criminal behavior by youth. Second, the character of the reports by government agencies of trends in criminal behavior by young people tends to shift, depending more upon whether the government is seeking reelection (downward trend reporting) or increased funding (upward trend reporting) than upon what may actually be occurring in the neighborhoods and on the streets of the country."
