School safety personnel. Defines a school resource officer as a trained, certified law-enforcement officer hired by a local law-enforcement agency to provide law-enforcement and security services to Virginia public elementary and secondary schools and a school security officer as an individual who is employed by the local school board for the singular purpose of maintaining order and discipline, preventing crime, investigating violations of school board policies, and detaining and apprehending students violating the law or school board policies on school property or at school-sponsored events and who is responsible solely for ensuring the safety, security, and welfare of all students, faculty, staff, and visitors in the assigned school. The measure also directs the Department of Criminal Justice Services, in consultation with the Department of Education and the Virginia State Crime Commission, to establish compulsory minimum standards for employment and job-entry and in-service training curricula and certification requirements for school security officers; the training and certification will be administered by the Virginia Center for School Safety. School security officers are precluded from appointment as conservators of the peace and as special police officers. A second enactment clause provides that the training and employment standards will be applicable to persons employed as school security officers on and after September 15, 2003. This bill is identical to SB 295.
