Bill to Remove Restrictions on School Police

Posted: Updated:

Lawmakers in Carson City are considering a move that would remove restrictions on the role of school police officers, and make them equivalent with primary police officers.

The committee is set to hear AB103 Wednesday morning at 9:00am.

Current law restricts the duties of school police officers and limits their jurisdiction to school property unless they are in pursuit of a criminal, at a school function or issuing traffic citations on the streets adjacent to school property.

The bill removes those limitations and makes school police category 1 peace officers.

It also removes a requirement to transfer some felony cases to other local law enforcement.
