Concerned Cops
“Concerned Cops” is a mentoring program for high school and middle school students at risk for effectively relating to authority figures (i.e. school teachers, administrators, police, etc.). Students are taught coping skills, learning through role playing and discussion, to follow directions, and constructively deal with perceptions of biased or disrespectful behavior.

School internal security checks provide random evaluation of a school’s internal security awareness and actions by staff and students to identify suspicious persons in school without proper identification or purpose.

The CCSD Police have procedures in place to follow-up on violent threats or crimes received after normal school hours involving school students/staff or facilities.
