When the final bell rings, students stream out of Lansing’s three public high schools. And sometimes that’s when the trouble begins.
In 2013, an after-school shooting outside Lansing’s Sexton High School injured four students.
City officials are hoping a new team of volunteers may help head off problems in the future.
Police Chief Mike Yankowski says the “school watch” program will operate similar to a “neighborhood watch”, keeping an eye out for trouble during the hours after school.
