California Law Introduced to Reduce Police Calls on K-12 Campuses

SACRAMENTO, CA – A measure was introduced by Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) this week designed to reduce the police calls on students with alleged behavioral issues in class in K-12 schools.

According to Assemblymember Kalra’s statement, current law states educators in the state of California are forced to contact the police for a broad range of issues relating to the students behavioral issues no matter how small.

If educators don’t comply with this California state law then educators can be subject to a fine up to $1,000, said Kalra.

Kalra argues the current standard causes “excessive” use of calling police officers simply for behavioral issues, which he claims is unnecessary and does more harm than good.
