Connecticut Bill Requires Trained School Security Officers
A bill that sets standards for school security officers in Connecticut has received final legislative approval.
The House of Representatives voted unanimously in favor of legislation that requires public elementary and secondary schools that choose to hire security officers to hire only active or retired police officers. Those officers must complete the Police Officer Standards and Training Council, or POST training.
The legislation already passed the Senate. It now awaits Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's signature.
