Category: Community Development Programs

About

The Schools, Community & Police Engagement (SCOPE) - Georgia program is supporting juvenile justice initiatives that promote positive, strong relationships between law enforcement, secondary school students, and the local community with an emphasis on supporting community policing approaches and raising the awareness in communities of issues such as trafficking, domestic violence, bullying, and cybercrime as they relate specifically to juveniles.
 
SCOPE-Georgia is using an integrated approach that educates juveniles on the law and law enforcement/legal-judicial careers, builds positive relationships between juveniles and law enforcement authorities, increases the capacity of police in primary and secondary crime prevention using community policing approaches, and develops community outreach programs focused on key juvenile justice issues.
 
As a result:
  • Juvenile delinquency is decreased as youth gain a greater understanding and respect for the rule of law, legal issues, law enforcement and criminal investigation.
  • Capacity of police is increased to implement effective community policing initiatives.
  • Greater community awareness of legal issues are introduced addressing trafficking, domestic violence, bullying, cyber security and cybercrime.

​SCOPE is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
