Preemptive D.A.R.E.

Here's a way to teach high school kids about law enforcement: Surround them with spies who look like their friends. An Ohio school district planted a 23-year-old investigator at Milford High School, where she played Senior and hung out with the cool kids until she had dirt on 16 of them:

Only Superintendent John Frye, who came up with the idea, and school board president Carol Ball, who gave her approval, knew of the investigation in which the detective in her 20s posed as an 18-year-old student who went to classes, took exams, and went to after-school parties without anyone—including teachers—knowing her identity.

A later report says 17 kids have been arrested on drug charges.

Whole thing here.
