Resources for Law Enforcement Officers

For more than 20 years, law enforcement officers have been vital Street Law partners. We offer training and curricula to support community-based police officers and officers assigned to work in schools. These programs blend substance and strategy, educating young people about law, the legal system, their rights, and their responsibilities. Students and officers alike benefit from the cooperative learning and positive interaction between youths and adults. It’s no wonder that a national evaluation of law-related education found that classes that incorporate police officers have the most powerful effect on delinquency prevention.
