Safety Law News for February 24, 2016

  • In Washington State, the schools in the Tri-Cities area of Pasco, Richland and Kennewick, report significantly fewer weapons on campus.  The good news is attributed to two things: the good presence of community oriented policing and utilizing a good security team within the building.
  • In Virginia, House Bill 1234 has been introduced.  If passed, it would allow school security officers, who are not active duty police, to carry firearms if they are retired law-enforcement officers serving with the local school board’s approval.
