New Project Launch: Citizen Involvement in School Safety

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) is happy to announce the launch of its Citizen Involvement in School Safety Project.

Building upon the large body of work generated through the Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) Program, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has provided funding to the IACP to learn about and develop products to demonstrate how law enforcement agencies are enlisting volunteer support in school and campus safety initiatives.

The first phase of the project is to gather information about existing school/campus safety programs and partnerships that incorporate volunteers.

If your agency is interested in participating in this project, please contact us at schoolsafety@theiacp.org.

The project's activities will be closely coordinated with the VIPS Program and its resources will be made available through the VIPS Web site http://www.policevolunteers.org/.
