School Liaison Unit
PROGRAM PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION
The School Liaison Unit is responsible for developing and maintaining positive communications/relationships between the police department and the nineteen school districts in the City of San Jose. Unit members participate on school safety committees, and truancy committees.
Along with giving numerous presentations to students, parents and school staff, officers participate in specific budgeted programs.
These programs include:
- Emergency Response Protocol Training
- Safe School Campus Initiative (SSCI)
- School site safety meetings
- Truancy reduction programs such as Truancy Abatement Burglary Suppression (TABS).
School Liaison Officers also actively participate in police investigations involving school related crimes.
The Safe School Campus Initiative, also known as the Emergency Response Protocol, is a school based safety program coordinated by the School Liaison Unit. This is the School Liaison Unit’s primary function. The program operates throughout all of the school districts in the city. The program is a coordinated emergency response plan that partners the San Jose Police Department, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services, County Probation and various community based organizations.
This structure enables us to respond in a coordinated fashion to incidents of violence and threats of violence on school campuses.
