Reporting Under the Law Enforcement Agreement.
Under the bill, if school officials determined an incident had occurred at school that is required to be reported to law enforcement agencies or child protection agencies, or both, the superintendent would have to immediately report that finding to the appropriate state or local law enforcement agency and the appropriate state or local child protection agency.  If provided in a memorandum of understanding, a local law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction over a school building of a school district would be required to report to school officials in a building the incidents reported to the agency that alleged the commission of a crime that either occurred within 1,000 feet of the school or that involved a student or staff member as a victim or alleged perpetrator.  Upon request, school officials would have to provide the law enforcement agency with any information needed to provide such a report.
Statewide School Safety Information Policy
PA 102 of 1999, Section 1308
