WTTW Chicago Tonight | CPS Considers Alternatives to School Resource Officers

While several Chicago Public Schools have removed police officers from their buildings, 55 schools in the city still have school resource officers.  

On Wednesday, after months of meetings with students, parents and other partners, the school district and five community organizations laid out recommendations for those schools to pursue a more holistic approach to safety. 

Among the recommendations for those 55 CPS schools are implementing expanded access to mental health resources, promoting leadership roles among the student body and including parents and community members in important school decisions.
