Oregon Senate Passes 'Kaylee's Law' About Campus Security
The Oregon Senate has unanimously voted to pass "Kaylee's Law," which would curtail some of the policing authority from security officers hired to patrol college campuses.
The proposal, which was approved Tuesday and now goes to the House, is known as "Kaylee's Law" after Kaylee Sawyer, a 23-year-old who was raped and murdered by a Central Oregon Community College security guard in 2016, says a news report.
Security officers will no longer have stop and frisk authority under the bill, Senate Bill 576. The bill also calls for nationwide background checks on all private security or special campus safety officers and removes stop and frisk authority.
Cars operating by campus security officers also must not possess ramming bumpers, red and blue light bars, internal cages or other features of standard police vehicles.
The bill now goes to the Oregon House for consideration.
