A bill (H.R. 2342) introduced by Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) would establish a National Center for Campus Public Safety. The center would train public safety agencies and their partners on campus crime issues and increase cooperation between law enforcement and mental health agencies. The center would be tasked with collecting and disseminating information about best practices in campus safety as well as developing protocols to prevent, respond to, and recover from emergencies on campuses.
A bill (S.B. 55) in the Kentucky legislature would permit jurisdictions in the state to enter into mutual-aid agreements with other states to share first-responder personnel in case of an emergency. The bill would also extend the same immunity to these first responders as is afforded to those from within Kentucky.
