SLP Officer

Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and educate students.

The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been allocated to public and private high schools across the state.

Organizers say the officers, who began work last week, will build positive relationships between police and students. But parent groups warned of potential dangers of armed police working at schools in communities where police relations were already under strain.

Among their duties, the SLPs will conduct crime prevention workshops, talking to students about issues including shoplifting, offensive behavior, graffiti and drugs, and alcohol. They can also advise school principals.

One SLP, Constable Ben Purvis, began work in the inner Sydney region last week, including at Alexandria Park Community School’s senior campus. Previously stationed as a crime prevention officer at The Rocks, he now has 27 schools under his jurisdiction in areas including The Rocks, Redfern and Kings Cross.

Constable Purvis said the full-time position would see him working on the broader issues of crime prevention.

“I am not a security guard,” he said. “I am not there to patrol the school.

We want to improve relationships between police and schoolchildren, to have a positive interaction. We are coming to the school and giving them the knowledge to improve their own safety.”

The use of fake ID among older students is among the issues he has already discussed with principals.

Parents’ groups responded to the program positively but said it may spark a range of community reactions.

“It is a good thing and an innovative idea and there could be some positive benefits,” Council of Catholic School Parents executive officer Danielle Cronin said.

The beginning of the seventeenth century is known as the “scientific revolution” for the drastic changes evidenced in the European approach to science during that period. The word “revolution” connotes a period of turmoil and social upheaval where ideas about the world change severely and a completely new era of academic thought is ushered in. This term, therefore, describes quite accurately what took place in the scientific community following the sixteenth century. During the scientific revolution, medieval scientific philosophy was abandoned in favor of the new methods proposed by Bacon, Galileo, Descartes, and Newton; the importance of experimentation to the scientific method was reaffirmed; the importance of God to science was for the most part invalidated, and the pursuit of science itself (rather than philosophy) gained validity on its own terms. The change to the medieval idea of science occurred for four reasons:

(1) Seventeenth-century scientists and philosophers were able to collaborate with members of the mathematical and astronomical communities to effect advances in all fields;

(2) Scientists realized the inadequacy of medieval experimental methods for their work and so felt the need to devise new methods (some of which we use today);

(3) Academics had access to a legacy of European, Greek, and Middle Eastern scientific philosophy they could use as a starting point (either by disproving or building on the theorems); and

(4) Groups like the British Royal Society helped validate science as a field by providing an outlet for the publication of scientists’ work.

These changes were not immediate, nor did they directly create the experimental method used today, but they did represent a step toward Enlightenment thinking (with an emphasis on reason) that was revolutionary for the time. Assessment of the state of science before the scientific revolution, examination of the differences in the experimental methods utilized by different “scientists” during the seventeenth century, and exploration into how advances made during the scientific revolution affected the scientific method used in science today will provide an idea of how revolutionary the breakthroughs of the seventeenth century really were and what impact they’ve had.

  • Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to mitigate crime rates by conducting crime prevention workshops and educating students to avoid offensive behavior, but this initiative by SLP has been opposed by the parents due to the potential dangers of armed police.
    Due to the collaboration between mathematical and astronomical communities, realization the inadequacy of medieval experimental methods, access to legacy scientific philosophy, and platform to publish scientific work, a scientific revolution occurred in the beginning of the seventeenth century with the set of core ideas such as on the experimentation for validation of theory, acceptance of science to God, and the pursuit of science itself.

    1.)
    Armed police have been brought into the NSW School to raise the student awareness on safety and crime prevention through the positive interaction and workshops, however, while some parents deemed this as a beneficial procedure, others warned the potential threat of armed people at school premises.

    2.)
    The early seventeenth century was the revolutionary era of modern science where scientists were worked together with mathematical and astronomical communities to validate the prevailed scientific methods and eventually came up with several experimental method based advancements which led to invalidate the importance of God to science and abandon the medieval scientific philosophy.

  • “scientific revolution” had changed the world in seventeenth century by revolutionary inventions and experiments by collaborating people from science and arts, due to which numerous advancement were achieved in various fields of science.

  • The beginning of the seventeenth century was a revolutionary for the field of science, where old
    scientific methods were abandoned and favored new methods as result of scientific collaboration,
    access to academics and old methods used as starting point as a step towards new thinking has a greater impact on the scientific method used in science today.

  • The School Liaison Police officers have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and educate students about issues including shoplifting, offensive behaviour, drugs, and alcohol but some people believe it as a good thing while others not.

  • A group of SLP armed cops have been allocated 40 NSW schools, where they will be developing the sense of safety among the students and curb crime at grass-root level thereby improving relation between police and school children, however the program has attracted mixed reactions from parents.

  • 40 School Liason Police (SLP) were allocated to different schools to build a positive relationship between the students and police and provide crime prevention workshops to students for their safety, which has got some affirmative response from parents as well as the council.

    Author please review. Thanks a lot.

    • During the seventeenth century, the approach to science observed a gradual shift from the medieval philosophical ideas to experimental explanations, which proved to be a revolution achieved through various scientific community collaborations, rise in the need to devise new methods and publication of scientific works.

    • – Article missing “knowledge for safety”. It should be “knowledge for the safety”
      – Everything else looks good

  • Although the 40 SLP officers, which have been allocated to the NSW public and private schools are responsible for various reasons like: building positive relationship between students, to conduct crime prevention workshops still parents is concerned about poor relationship with the police and warned about community reaction, however, officer Danielle Cronin is happy with the innovative idea and positive about the result.

  • The introduction of School Liaison Police (SLP) officers to schools in NSW, brought a positive reaction from some parents’ as well as principals’ groups regarding enlightening students about crime prevention by educating them about drugs, shoplifting and improving their own safety.

    The seventeenth century created a step towards enlightenment thinking and brought a breakthrough of scientific revolution era in which medieval scientific philosophy was abandoned due to scientists new methods which were based on reasons such as collaboration of mathematical and astronomical communities’ members, realization of scientists about obsoleteness of old experiments, academics access to scientific philosophy legacy and help of British Royal Society for validation and publication of scientists’ work.

    Author please review.

    • 1. SLP Officers

      – ‘Improving their own safety’ does not look correct. Consider changing it. Here is an example:
      Wordy: I personally wouldn’t want to watch that movie.
      Concise: I wouldn’t want to watch that movie.

      – Good summary

      2. Scientific Revolution
      – Content-wise ok, Grammar is apt, form looks good

  • The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been introduced to public and private high schools in NSW in order to reduce crime rates and educate students by implementing crime prevention workshops, discussing with students about concerned issues, and ultimately, build good relationship between police and school children, with some parents welcomed it and others not.

    Scientific revolution in the early 17th century was possible because, scientists and philosophers were able to advances in all fields by collaborating with mathematical and astronomical communities, medieval methods were abandoned and new experimental methods were created instead, academics had access to a legacy of scientific philosophy of countries including European, Greek and middle East, and work done by them was published by groups like the British Royal Society.

  • Author – Please evaluate. Thanks.

    The drastic changes to the medieval philosophy in seventeenth century by famous scientists were made possible due to contributions of mathematical and astronomical communities and devising new methods and this has shown the advancement in the science today.

  • Earlier of seventeenth century was different than sixteenth century which was named “scientific revolution”, and it brought many innivation and experimental changes which were not immediate and and affected all aspects of lives by scientist.

  • The idea for Armed forces to visit the SLP school was to reduce crime rates, build positive relationship and educate students about their own self safety measures, which was supported by Parents positively but considered to spark a community reaction in future.
