MySpace.com helps Ark. police link to students

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — As school resource officers, Jon Schwulst and Fran Hichens' office doors are open to students. But for some students, approaching the officers at school can be a daunting task.

In the past year, about two dozen pages sponsored by police departments across the country have appeared on MySpace, which has about 160 million profile pages in all.
