Crime in Texas


Students will write a public service announcement showing their fellow students ways in which they can try to prevent crime. An extension activity may be having the students film the commercials and show them to the rest of the school as a public service announcement. Students will analyze the statistics on seven major offenses, also called Index Crimes, for their county from the chart “Crime Profile of Texas Counties.” They should also research current crime-prevention programs being implemented locally.
