School Safety Culture
Detroit Public Schools Community District is the only school District in the state with a fully functioning police department. In addition, to external patrols and security measures, the District has taken a whole child approach to student safety with a student code of conduct inclusive of restorative practices, a dean of culture, attendance agent and a school culture facilitator in each school and a districtwide approach to character development through our Expect Respect initiative. The Police Department's focus is based on a four-tiered strategy of crime prevention, intervention, student reintegration into the learning environment, and as a last option enforcement. The whole child commitment is supported by the methodologies of trauma informed practices.
