  Police in schools from autumn
Updated 29 April 2002, 07.46

Police officers are to be based permanently in schools with high truancy and discipline problems.

Around 60 to 70 officers will be allocated to schools in England's inner cities.

They will be in and around classrooms all day, every day, from the autumn.


Police could be offering advice in schools from September
The government believes there is a strong link between school truancy and street crime.

They hope that the police will become more involved in the school community, as well as offer advice and support on bullying and behaviour.

The move is part of the government's determination to crack down on youth crime and will cost 10m.
