School Safety Law Toolkit

Senate Bill 30

Under this bill, the State Board of Education and the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement will work together to establish instruction on interacting with law enforcement for students in grades 9-12 and a civilian interaction training program for peace officers. The curriculum will teach the responsibility and duties of law enforcement, a person's rights during an interaction, proper behavior for each party involved, and how to file a complaint against an officer. Driver education and safety courses will also include instruction on what to do during traffic stops.
