Question
Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and educate students. The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been allocated to public and private high schools across the state.

Organizers say the officers, who began work last week, will build positive relationships between police and students. But parent groups warned of potential dangers of armed police working at schools in communities where police relations were already under strain.

Among their duties, the SLPs will conduct crime prevention workshops, talking to students about issues including shoplifting, offensive behaviour, graffiti and drugs and alcohol. They can also advise school principals.One SLP, Constable Ben Purvis, begantowork in the inner Sydney region last week, including at Alexandria Park Community School’s senior campus. Previously stationed as a crime prevention officer at The Rocks, he now has 27 schools under his jurisdiction in areas including The Rocks, Redfern and Kings Cross.

Constable Purvis said the full-time position would see him working on the broader issues of crime prevention. “I am not a security guard,” he said. “I am not there to patrol the school.
We want to improve relationships between police and schoolchildren, to have positive interaction. We are coming to the school and giving them knowledge to improve their own safety.”

The use of fake ID among older students is among the issues he has already discussed with principals.

Parents’ groups responded to the program positively, but said it may spark a range of community reactions.

“It is a good thing and an innovative idea and there could be some positive benefits,” Council of Catholic School Parents executive officer

Danielle Cronin said. “Different communities will respond to this kind of presence in different ways.”

 

思路解析

大致扫一下文章,可以发现这段文字是一段新闻或故事类的文字。一般来说这种类型的文章需要包含的要素可能有Who, Where, and When, How, Why. 以及People’s opinion. 接下来我们就来具体看文章,还是本着我们SWT的做题法则:剪修饰,剥栗子,找转折。

Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and educate students. The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been allocated to public and private high schools across the state.

【主旨段落内容非常重要,相信大部分同学都不会忽略这个点的。后面具体的学校部分可以视为具体例子,直接概括为 NSW schools.这段就包含了Who,Where,和Why的要素。】

Organizers say the officers, who began work last week, will build positive relationships between police and students. But parent groups warned of potential dangers of armed police working at schools in communities where police relations were already under strain.

【SWT做题要点:找转折。本段中一个大大的BUT给了我们提示,表明部分家长对于这件事的态度是负面的。People’s opinion也找到了。】

Among their duties, the SLPs will conduct crime prevention workshops, talking to students about issues including shoplifting, offensive behaviour, graffiti and drugs and alcohol. They can also advise school principals. One SLP, Constable Ben Purvis, begantowork in the inner Sydney region last week, including at Alexandria Park Community School’s senior campus. Previously stationed as a crime prevention officer at The Rocks, he now has 27 schools under his jurisdiction in areas including The Rocks, Redfern and Kings Cross.

【这段话后面一大段都是举例子,可以直接忽略掉。而第一句话则告诉了我们How,可以包含在Summary中。】

【后面的内容也全部都是举例,可以直接忽略不计。】

 

Sample Answer

School liaison police have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and improve students’ safety by conducting workshops and some people believe it a good thing while others not.

很多同学关于这道题的最大疑问是能不能直接用SLP的缩写,小助手建议大家最好不要,还是全拼出来比较好。如果要用缩写的话,一定要像原文中那样,先出现全拼,再用括号说明缩写,后文才能直接用缩写的形式。
