This paper represents the findings of a two-year COPS grant research project to understand the incidence and prevalence of school-based violence and bullying behavior as well as create interventions to reduce this violence. Specific strategies developed by a school - police partnership, included the use of a mapping program, teacher training, security changes and parental education. An assessment of the intervention effectiveness is discussed.
