Bellino’s plan for enhanced law enforcement training related to school safety The Michigan House Appropriations Committee today approved state Rep. Joe Bellino’s plan to help improve school safety in Michigan through enhanced training for law enforcement personnel.Bellino’s measure would mandate consistent, standardized training related to school violence incidents be part of the requirements to become a licensed law enforcement officer in Michigan. The requirements initially would apply to new personnel and would apply to all law enforcement members by 2020.“School security requires a team approach – and law enforcement is a huge part of that team,” said Bellino, of Monroe. “The goal is to provide the best training possible to prepare our officers if they ever have to respond to an act of violence targeting our schools.”Bellino’s legislation is part of a broader House initiative approved by the committee with bipartisan support.The plan includes the creation of a School Safety Commission to review safety procedures in Michigan schools and more resources for security improvements in school buildings across the state. Other parts of the plan would make the OK2SAY school safety program permanent, require reporting procedures for school incidents and threats, and require safety-related measures in new school construction.The plan advances to the House floor for further consideration.###The legislation: House Bills 5828-30 and 5850-52.last_img read more
