Safety Law News for May 10, 2018

May 11, 2018

  • In Missouri, a non-sworn security officer in the St. Louis County schools was arrested and charged with assault for violating school district policy when he used a Taser on an unarmed middle-school student.  School district policy of the Normandy Schools Collaborative prohibits anyone other than a law enforcement officer from carrying any weapon capable of deadly use on school grounds. 

  • In Indiana, officials in Lake County, Porter County, and LaPorte County are implementing agreements with local police to give them access to all school buildings using remote keyless entry fobs and swipe-cards.  The memorandum of understanding also calls for each officer to be issued a school ID card.  Some private schools are planning to join the memorandum. 

  • In South Carolina, the South Carolina House of Representatives unanimously amended the state budget to let retired state workers return to a state job and be exempt from a $10,000 earnings cap on working retirees.  The goal is to ease a statewide shortage of teachers and school resource officers.

  • In Michigan, the House of Representatives passed a set of school safety initiatives. A bipartisan six-bill package would create a school safety commission, establish statewide safety standards for school buildings, require school-based law enforcement training, mandate reporting between schools and police, grade school performance, and provide funds for upgrades.  See H.B. 5828; H.B. 5829; H.B. 5830; H.B. 5850; H.B. 5851; H.B. 5852
