“Sometimes people will say, ‘all that’s happening (when police officers work in schools) is you’re going in and arresting more kids and putting them in the juvenile justice system,’” NASRO executive director Mo Canady told Boston Public Radio station WGBH. “And I have to tell you that if the program’s done the right way – it’s the right officer, they’re properly trained – the opposite is happening.” Read the entire article on the WGBH website.
