Los Angeles police officers have taught safety in schools for years. But reserve officer Fred Baron couldn't help but wonder why students at San Fernando Valley's five special education schools weren't getting the same education on a more rudimentary level. On Friday, Baron and three police officers changed that by bringing the POSSE Project--which stands for Police Officers Supporting Special Education--to 150 or so students at Joaquin Miller High School in Reseda.
