Making Schools Safe for Learning: An Evaluation of "Escola Segura, Familia Forte" in Campo Grande, Brazil

This project evaluates the effects of reducing crime and violence in the vicinity and interior of schools through policing that is specifically trained to patrol schools. We will randomly select 56 schools to receive direct police patrol and a direct network of communication with the police through a whatsapp application. We will then use the randomized intervention to measure the effects of intensive patrols on crime and violence outside and inside schools, and measures of schooling outcomes.
