Safety Law News for September 11, 2018

In Florida, the legislature has refused to allow $58 million that was allocated to train school staff to act as armed guardians to be used instead to hire more campus police officers.  Most school districts in Florida made it clear they wanted only sworn law enforcement officers to be armed and took a pass on the guardian money. 

In Connecticut, the training of school-based police in the Hartford schools emphasizes keeping a professional image at all times.  The motto is, “Don’t meet with students alone. Don’t text kids or give them rides. Fist bumps, yes; hugs, no. Be a trusted adult, not a friend. 

In Indiana, officials in Lawrenceburg have installed an internet-based, mobile-friendly school security camera system.  The project involved the installation of 226 cameras in all schools in the Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation.  The system will be a new resource for local police departments; they have access to the camera system.

In Tennessee, every school in Sullivan County will have supplies of the opioid antidote Narcan.  Under new state law, every school board in the state is required to implement a plan to give the medication to students believed to be having a drug overdose.
