Law Enforcement Says Preschool Reduces Crime 9-10-2010

Law enforcement leaders held a news conference Friday to release a new report that shows investing more money into pre-kindergarten programs not only reduces crime, but could also save the state millions.
According to a news release, the report documents that investments in pre-K programs can reduce the need for special education placements and other K-12 education expenses when pre-K children advance to later grades.
"Everybody in law enforcement, and all the thousands of police officers in our state who fight crime and invest in kids, support this organization for one single reason -- it works," said Saginaw County Prosecutor Mike Thomas.
Saginaw police chief Gerald Cliff, Saginaw County prosecutor Mike Thomas, Congressman Dale Kildee attended the news conference at the Saginaw police department.
