February 1, 2018

  • In Florida, the Florida District Court of Appeal applied the exigent circumstances exception to affirm the conviction of a shooter who seriously injured a student by firing several bullets towards a bus stop near an elementary school.  Evidence used in the conviction was discovered through the warrantless search of the abandoned cell phone. 

  • In Wisconsin, the Beloit Police Department are placing body cameras on police officers as part of a new policy of transparency and accountability.  Cameras will be used by school resource officers across the School District of Beloit.  The cameras would be activated when a school resource officer (SRO) gets called by a school official or security person to respond to a situation.

  • In Ohio, three Toledo Police Department officers, including a school resource officer, are using vlogs, or video blogs to improve relations with the community through social media use.  Each vlog will focus on a particular unit or topic and can be viewed on YouTube or the department’s other social media accounts.

  • In Colorado, the new sexting law, HB 17-1302, took effect in January.  Under prior law, every violation was a felony.  The new law provides a menu of options.  The Colorado School Safety Resource Center (CSSRC) has been mandated to create a comprehensive education program to distribute to schools by June 2018. In the meantime, CSSRC has released a brief video to help the public understand the tiered system.
