The following letter is in the Duval County Public School Student Code of Conduct handbook:
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office assigns and supervises school resource officers in all middle and high schools within the Duval County Public Schools. The school resource officer program has been in existence since 1990, and was designed as a delinquency prevention/intervention based program, geared towards fostering a better understanding between law-enforcement officers and students in the district.
In August 2008, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in collaboration with Duval County Public Schools will implement the 'Project Safe Students in Schools' early intervention program for the 2008-2009 school year.
The goal of 'Project Safe Students in Schools' early intervention program is to provide a safe and secure learning environment where teachers can teach and students can learn by providing prompt, intensive, individualized and effective intervention strategies to break the cycle of unacceptable behavior and focus on reducing violence, the threat of violence and the fear of violence in schools.
For more information on the 'Project Safe Students in Schools' early intervention program, please contact the school resource officer at your respective school or the Community Affairs Division of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at (904) 630-2160.
