Bill Aims to Lift Limits on School Police Officers

Posted: Updated:

Lawmakers are considering a move that would remove restrictions on the role of school police officers, but critics claim some departments don't have the integrity to warrant such a responsibility increase.

Democratic Assemblyman Richard Carrillo of Las Vegas presented the bill Wednesday to the Assembly Government Affairs Committee.

The bill removes restrictions on the duties of school police officers. Under existing law, their jurisdiction is only school property unless they are in hot pursuit of a criminal, at a school function or issuing traffic citations on the streets adjacent to school property.

The bill also repeals a requirement for school police in Nevada's two largest counties, Clark and Washoe, to transfer investigations of category A felonies to a primary law enforcement agency. (AP)
