G.R.E.A.T. Gang Resistance Education and Training
The G.R.E.A.T. Program is a school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum. With prevention as its primary objective, the program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.
G.R.E.A.T. has developed partnerships with nationally recognized organizations, such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the National Association of Police Athletic Leagues. These partnerships encourage positive relationships among the community, parents, schools, and law enforcement officers.
G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. The G.R.E.A.T. Program offers a continuum of components for students and their families.
Currently, the Randolph Police Department has 7 G.R.E.A.T. Certified Officers who teach in the Randolph Middle School, JFK Elementary School, Donovan Elementary School, Young Elementary School and Lyons Elementary School. See the Officers pictured below with Chief Pace.
