Policing in Schools



This programme investigates how teachers can ensure a safe school environment and prevent their challenging pupils from getting involved in crime. It considers whether having the police based full-time on school premises would help or hinder.

Eight experts respond to an imaginary case study that poses dilemmas created through handling troubled youngsters. The late professor Ted Wragg asks a panel of teachers, governors and policemen to tackle the issues of pupils carrying offensive weapons, drug abuse, and stealing at school and within the community.

Our panellists include:


  • Philip O'Hear, head of Capital City Academy
  • Robin Bosher, headteacher from Fairlawn Primary School
  • Christ West, a police officer from the Haringey Safer Schools Team
  • Paul Mihill, a police officer from the Greenwich Youth Offending Team.
