'School Campus' Police officers appear to have made the front-page of the Scotsman this morning - I'm afraid I can't say I agree with the EIS on this one :-(
There was actually a report on Edinburgh's two (current) 'School Campus' Police officers at the last meeting of our Education Committee - you can read the full text here.
As you'll see from the report, the whole project has been pretty successful, and there was all-Party agreement here in the City Chambers to press ahead with the expansion of the scheme into another 4 (yet to be chosen) Edinburgh Secondary Schools.
On top of the success of the pilot ... the whole programme (including the now agreed expansion in Edinburgh) is being paid for by the Police and not by Local Authorities.
So, for me personally, I do think that as long as the implementation of the scheme into any specific Secondary School is handled sensitively, then the outcome/s can be very positive ... not just for the school but the wider community.
