Stand Up and Start a School Crime Watch!
(NCJ 171123) December 1998
OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
The third in OJJDP's series of Youth in Action Bulletins, Stand Up and Start a School Crime Watch! urges youth to set up school crime watch programs and tells them exactly how to get such programs up and running in their schools. Keeping an eye out for suspicious activities will not only keep community members safe, the Bulletin explains, but will send a powerful message that the youth involved do not tolerate crime at their school. In addition to providing easy to follow instructions on how to set up a school crime watch program, the Bulletin identifies specific challenges and rewards of instituting this type of program, supplies tips on how youth can evaluate their programs, and lists organizations for youth to contact for additional information. Like other Bulletins in this series, Stand Up and Start a School Crime Watch! is intended for a youth audience.
