Indiana police conference presentation 6 18 (1)

  1. 1. SD + PD = X CELL: Case Studies in Collaborative Best Practices Glenn “Max” McGee, President Hazard, Young, Attea, and Associates maxmcgee@hyasearch.com www.glennmaxmcgee.com @glennmaxmcgee
  2. 2. • It was not long into my interview with DuJuan Green, Palo Alto High School’s School Resource Officer, that I knew he was not a typical police officer. Seconds after meeting me, he approached a troubled student, whom he had spoken with previously, and warmly greeted him with, “What’s up man!” followed by a big hug. • As we were walking away, the student turned back and said, “I’ll never do it again,” to which Green responded, “I trust you, man!” • Although Greene is a police officer, he treated the student like an equal, like a friend. Green did not act like he was simply enforcing the law, but rather like an individual trying to better his community.
  3. 3. • He told me a story about how a student stole a bike. After speaking with the student who took the bike, Green got the bike back and the student was not prosecuted or even detained. • “When they asked him why he gave back the bike he said, ‘The officer treated me like a human being,’” Green says. “I respected him, and therefore he told us what we wanted to know, brought the bike back and he and I, even to this day, are close.”
  4. 4. For today’s discussion • Issues • Suicide prevention, intervention, postvention • Sexual misconduct/Title IX • Attackers (knives and guns, wrenches and bats) • Threat assessment • Controlled substances • Themes • Communication • Collaboration • School Support • Potential Conflicts
  5. 5. • However, there is hope. This presentation will share some successful practices driven by courageous, innovative, compassionate, and impassioned leaders, teachers, parents, and students. These practices have made the schools more humane, healthy, and engaging. Strong academics have been sustained and definitions of success have expanded. 6 FROM

  12. 12. Means restriction: access to lethal means is a risk factor for suicide • 90% of attempters who survive do NOT go on to die by suicide later • Many attempts take place during a short-term crisis, so access to lethal means during these periods of increased risk is critically important. • “Access to firearms in the home triples the risk of suicide. This is true regardless of how the guns are stored or how many there are.” 14 Insert train track photo

  20. 20. Clearly, DuJuan Green merits my strongest recommendation for the Floyd Ledbetter National School Resource Officer of the Year Award. I know you will have numerous qualified applicants, but I cannot imagine one that has served with both integrity, dedication, love, and joy in such trying circumstances or one that has made a difference to so many. I have no doubt that our students will remember him fondly long after graduation and that the many lives he has touched will continue to “pay it forward” with the lessons they have learned from DuJuan. Thank you for considering him for this most prestigious award.
