Apart from the obvious advantages for a safer Community overall, the proposal to reintroduce the Police In Schools Program to Primary Schools and embedded police in Secondary Schools (PISP) would see a substantial increase in safety for teachers.
The Community Advocacy Alliance (CAA) has submitted the PISP proposal to both the Government and the Opposition. Only the Mathew Guy Opposition has embraced and announced the inclusion of a PISP in their policy.
This initiative would be the single most effective way to help protect our educators and reduce stress.
A PISP would reduce the current cost of violence and associated stress in schools dramatically and that would go a long way to funding the program and gaining all the additional benefits the program can bring.
