Safety Law News for January 17, 2018

  • In Tennessee, a bipartisan group of lawmakers, juvenile court officials, judges, and district attorneys are reacting to the Report by the Blue-Ribbon Task Force on Juvenile Justice.  The Report calls for a major overhaul in the juvenile justice system.  Included in the recommendations are (1) improved data collection and inter-agency information sharing (2) a significant reduction in the ability of school resource officers and school principals to make referrals to juvenile court.
  • In Wisconsin, the Madison School Board and the Madison Police Department are preparing responses to a year-long analysis of the Police Department authorized by the City Council.  The Report was designed to respond, in part, to opposition to police in the schools.  Recommendations include “soft” uniforms for school-based officers, improving communications and data sharing between the agencies and the public; and implementing specialized training for officers assigned to the schools.

    I would like to get a copy of the M.A.G.I.C. program that was instituted by the School Resource Officer with the Apopka Florida Police Department. I have not had any success. Could you help me?
