National Institute of Justice Video Addresses School Safety Programs

November 1, 2016


The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has released “Find School Safety Programs on CrimeSolutions.gov.” This short video discusses how school, social services, and agencies can use the CrimeSolutions.gov clearinghouse to find evidence-based programs and practices that can improve school safety. CrimeSolutions.gov includes almost 300 programs and practices on juvenile topics, including school safety, children exposed to violence, child protection and health, delinquency prevention, and risk and protective factors. The video also addresses the lack of strong evaluations of school safety programs that schools are implementing and investing in and how this presents an opportunity for research. Many of the programs were added to CrimeSolutions.gov under NIJ’s Comprehensive School Safety Initiative.

CrimeSolutions.gov programs can also be found on OJJDP’s Model Programs Guide along with other evidence-based resources.
