DETROIT (AP) - Michigan State Police will send 24 troopers to into the classrooms of six Detroit schools as part of an effort to teach about law enforcement and offer mentoring.

The Teaching, Educating, and Mentoring program, or TEAM, takes place Monday and Tuesday at the Education Achievement Authority schools.

The TEAM program seeks to make schools and communities safer, promote responsible citizenship and encourage positive character traits.

Schools in the EAA - the state's turnaround school district - are part of the lowest-performing public schools in the state. The 15 EAA schools have longer days, 500 more hours of class annually than usual, no grade levels and instruction tailored to individual students.
