School-Police Partnerships

Policy Center Resource

Policing on school property requires an understanding of the limitations placed on law enforcement officers and the responsibility of school authorities for supervision of children under their care. Law enforcement agencies should conduct investigations and related police business on school property in conformance with accepted legal practices and in recognition of the authority and responsibility of school officials to manage the school environment.

These documents provide guidance for officers responding to calls for service and dealing with incidents on school property during school hours or during school-sanctioned events.
