Bay Area School Referrals to Law Enforcement (2013-2014)

California schools referred 31,961 students to law enforcement, according to the latest available statewide data for 2011.

To get the most recent numbers, the Investigative Unit individually requested the latest student disciplinary data from 20 of the Bay Area's largest schools. In many districts, schools refer students of color and students with disabilities to law enforcement at a much higher rate than their peers.
