CSLO/SET Goals

  • Ensure the program remains in the schools – with future training, education and marketing the positives of having officers in the schools to the school community, in partnership with the school boards, this may be achieved
  • Examine the impact the CSLO/SET program has on crime rates/crime prevention within the school and surrounding communities (e.g. residential and business)
  • Provide more community meetings/trainings for the school communities and include School Officers and other organizations to enhance community engagement
  • Create a “Safety Village” that is designed and created by school communities, CSLO/SETs and other community members.  This could be a space to bring TPS and the community together which would provide a space for future safety trainings, community meetings, etc.  
  • To provide future opportunities for feedback re: SET Program from both the school community and CSLOs and SET
