Safety Law News for July 27, 2018

In Florida, officials with the Marion County Public Schools approved a new policy to nearly triple the number of school resource officers. The district plans to place 56 school resource officers on campus beginning this fall. That’s up from 18 officers last year. 

In Ohio, the Lakota School District is almost doubling its school resource officers from 10 to 18.  The eight new officers will allow the district to cover every campus.  The officers will be pulled from the West Chester Police Department and the Butler County Sheriff's Office. 

In Washington, D.C., President Trump’s School Safety Commission explores privacy laws, and collaboration between school officials and school resource officers in hearings to determine federal policy on school safety. 

In Wisconsin, a special policy committee created by the Madison School Board is looking to develop a safety plan.  It rejected a proposal to replace school resource officers with a liaison program.  Instead, the committee is looking to develop a safety plan for the district that incorporates a relationship with the Madison Police Department.
