G.R.E.A.T. is a school-based program that uses law enforcement officers to teach elementary and middle school students about gang violence. The program's objectives are delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership prevention. 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.
