Police to Guard 12 City Schools Cited as Violent

A task force of 150 police officers will help impose order on 12 of New York City’s most violent schools under an initiative announced yesterday by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to curb school violence. Together, the 12 schools enroll less than 3 percent of the city’s 1.1 million schoolchildren. But through Nov. 30, they accounted for 13 percent of serious crimes reported this school year and 11 percent of all incidents in the city schools, officials said. The list of schools, compiled over the winter break by the Department of Education, the Police Department and the teachers’ and principals’ unions, includes 10 high schools and two middle schools, concentrated in Brooklyn and the Bronx. Poverty rates at the schools range from below 20 percent at Canarsie High School in Brooklyn to nearly 90 percent at Junior High School 22, the Jordan L. Mott School, in the Bronx.Full Story
