The NSW Police Force has a strong commitment to building trust with young people while reducing crime, violence and fear of crime in the community.
School Liaison Police
The role of the School Liaison Police (SLP) is to ‘Increase the positive relationships and remove barriers between the school
community and police’. This is facilitated by developing programs and activities that involve students understanding the law, police role and their responsibilities to the community.
School Liaison Police are here to work with you and your school community to address issues that may be of particular interest to your school as well as general issues relating to incidence of crime that are taking place in the local and school community. Find out more about School Liaison Police

School Safe - Resources for Primary School Children
This program aims to help children identify the safe adults in their community, as well as safe places to go when they are lost, feeling unsafe or frightened or are in danger. Other goals include enabling children to develop their own personal safety strategies, to respect their bodies
and their personal space, to feel empowered with the ability to say NO and seek help when they feel unsafe or unsure, and to have the confidence to tell a trusted adult if they are being harmed in any way. Download the School Safe resource booklet
