Abstract: THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS THAT COMBINED SCHOOL-POLICE ACTION AIMED AT EARLY IDENTIFICATION OF THE SUBSET OF JUVENILES WITH A HIGH CRIME POTENTIAL, FOLLOWED BY REMEDIAL INTERVENTION, WILL RESULT IN A REDUCTION OF PROPERTY CRIMES. THE ORGANIZATION AND OPERATION OF THE SCHOOL-POLICE TEAMS IS DESCRIBED IN DETAIL. AN ADAPTIVE REMEDIAL INTERVENTION PROGRAM IS OUTLINED FOR CHRONIC TRUANTS, NONSERIOUS OFFENDERS, AND INITIAL SERIOUS OFFENDERS. INCLUDED IN EACH INTERVENTION PROGRAM IS A LIST OF ACTION ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY BE UTILIZED BY THE SCHOOL-POLICE TEAMS. THE EVALUATION DESIGN TO BE UTILIZED AND THE APPROPRIATE HYPOTHESES ARE PRESENTED TO BE TESTED. A DETAILED PROGRAM SCHEDULE IS PROVIDED AND DISCUSSED. THE APPENDICES TO THIS DOCUMENT PROVIDE DESCRIPTIONS OF TEAM MEMBERS, SAMPLE CASE FILE FORMAT, AND AN EVALUATION EXAMPLE TO ILLUSTRATE THE USE OF THE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE METHODOLOGY TO ACCEPT OR REJECT RELEVANT HYPOTHESES.
