Plan to embed police in 'worst schools'

The program aims to build a positive relationship between young people and the police.

The opposition leader told Neil Mitchell the program would initially be implemented in ten “high-risk” schools.

“It’s about building respect between young Victorians and the police,” Mr Guy said.

“This is a strong, proactive way of dealing with crime before it becomes an issue.”
