JPAM Featured Article

"Testing the School-to-Prison Pipeline"

By: Emily Owens, Ph.D.

This JPAM Featured Article examines the relationship between police officers and young people in areas where school resource officers (SROs) are used by local school districts.The net benefit of having a sworn law enforcement official regularly working on school grounds is the subject of debate in the academic and public sphere.   As part of our ongoing effort to promote JPAM authors to the APPAM membership and the public policy field at large, we have asked the author to answer a few questions. See her interview responses here.
