Over the last 20 years, in response to Columbine and other school shootings, there has been a huge increase in the presence of police officers in public schools across the country. Many people believe that police officers have the power to make schools safer for both staff and students. However, the increasing presence of police officers in school may lead to higher rates of contact with the juvenile justice system for students, particularly boys of color. Join Students for Ed Reform and the Civic Engagement Center for a panel discussion with community experts from around the Twin Cities to learn more about the controversies surrounding this particular issue.
