Obama administration unveils new guidelines for school policing
With the goal of protecting students civil rights and limiting unnecessarily harsh school discipline, the Obama administration is calling on schools to ensure that the role of on-site police is limited and clearly defined.
The Obama U.S. departments of Education and Justice has released new resources related to the hiring and training of school resource officers, which come amid national discussions about school discipline and the role of law-enforcement officers following several high-profile student arrests. They are the latest efforts by the administration to reshape school discipline by pushing back against zero-tolerance policies.
Communities that do not trust cops in their neighborhoods do not want to invite them into their schools with their children. Jonathan Stith, Alliance for Educational Justice
Among the resources are guidelines for crafting agreements between schools and local law-enforcement agencies, monitoring the actions of school-based police officers, and training police in such areas as child development and conflict de-escalation.
Those recommended practices will now serve as requirements for agencies that hire school resource officers through Justice Department grants, said Ronald L. Davis, the director of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services at the agency.
Local law enforcement agencies around the country use those grants, administered on a three-year cycle, to hire between 100 and 150 school resource officers every year, which means about 450 positions are funded by the grants at a given time, a small fraction of officers in schools nationwide, Davis said.
NEW GUIDELINES FOR POLICING IN SCHOOLS
Seek community input when drafting agreements with law-enforcement agencies that detail officers roles in schools and limit their involvement in disciplinary issues.
Incorporate local, state, and federal civil rights laws into those agreements and establish processes for monitoring compliance and receiving complaints about potential violations.
Set policies for hiring and training school resource officers on issues like appropriate use of restraints, child development, and the effects of youth involvement with the justice system.
Train teachers and staff to avoid calling on school officers to assist with nonviolent disciplinary issues.
Establish a process for evaluating school resource officers.
