John Pezold's thoughts

SB 149 requires the Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) to maintain a 40-hour training course for school resource officers. Minimum training will include assignment to an elementary or secondary school; search and seizure procedures in those schools; criminal offenses; gang and drug awareness; interviews and interrogations; emergency preparedness; and interpersonal interactions with adolescents, including encountering mental health issues.
