Abstract: One project has been to produce and present a crime prevention curriculum for all grades based on initial efforts focusing on students aged 12-14 years. For the younger children, the curriculum focuses on everyday situations that involve rules that people need to associate with one another. For children ages 9-12, the curriculum focuses on what happens when rules are broken. It discusses roads and traffic, shoplifting, thefts from parents, and vandalism. The curriculum for ages 12-14 starts with a video showing shoplifting, burglary, and vandalism and continues with a booklet and discussion of methods of preventing these behaviors and the role of the police, the courts, and other agencies in addressing these situations. For the youths aged 14-16, the curriculum focuses on choices made each day including choices to become involved in criminal behavior. Materials used in the curriculum include an idea pamphlet, an idea folder, a video, a poster, a puzzle, a folder for parents. Measuring the results of this prevention curriculum is difficult, but the teachers have responded positively to it.
