Gang Resistance Education and Training Program (G.R.E.A.T.).

The Gang Resistance Education and Training Program (G.R.E.A.T.), taught by uniformed police officers, is a school-based life-skills curriculum designed to enable youths to make sound decisions, be accountable, resist peer pressure, and establish positive attitudes toward law enforcement. The goal of the program is to prevent violence and gang activity. The instruction focuses on four areas: middle school, elementary school, summer, and families. The school sessions offer skills-based classes that focus on changing attitudes and behaviors. The summer component presents fun, constructive activities that add structure when children are on their school break. The G.R.E.A.T. families segment provides group interaction and activities for parents and children. For more information go to
