The infamous Columbine school shooting in April of 1999 changed forever the manner law enforcement and schools interact within the school setting.
Since its inception, the St. Louis County Police Department has been a leader in the establishment of the Safe Schools Partnership. That partnership was formed out of that tragic event in order to create an effective working relationship between our schools and police. The primary goal of this collaboration was to provide as safe an environment as possible for our children.
The Partnership is described in the pages accessed from the menu to the left. There is general information about the initiative and information on the Safe Schools Hotline. To the right are links to the downloadable manual describing the operations of the Partnership, as well as links to other school safety resources available on the Internet.
