Lansing, MI - The first day of school is less than a week away -- and the City of Lansing is teaming up with the Lansing School District to make neighborhoods safe for students.

Mayor Virg Bernero and Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski will launch the city's "School Watch" program this morning. Community volunteers will be stationed at Lansing's high schools and middle schools before school and after.

However, the volunteers aren't there to enforce the law, they are on site rather to act as an extra set of eyes and ears for police.
