Police plan for deprived schools

PUBLISHED October 26, 2004

Scotland's most deprived schools are to get their own police officers as part of a long-term operation to reduce the number of children turning to crime.

The Violence Reduction Strategy (VRS) will be launched in the Strathclyde Police area before the end of the year.
Officers based at schools will crack down on bullies and work with parents, social workers and children's reporters to nip delinquency in the bud.
