A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT DIRECTING THE LEE COUNTY SHERIFF TO PROVIDE SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS TO THE LEE COUNTY SCHOOLS.
Senate committee substitute to the 2nd edition makes the following changes. Deletes the provisions of the previous edition and instead provides that the Lee County Sheriff is responsible for providing school resource officers to the Lee County schools and requires the Sheriff and the Lee County Board of Education to enter into a memorandum of understanding for the provision of those services. Requires the Sheriff to use funds appropriated by Lee County to the Sheriff's Office for school resource officers to provide the officers to the schools.
Amends GS 74E-2 to decertify the Lee County Board of Education as a company police agency and prohibits the Board from employing or contracting with a company police agency certified under GS Chapter 74E.
Changes the act's effective date to August 1, 2013.
