Course detail: Mitigating Juvenile Exposure to the Criminal Justice System - Section 02

This 1.5 hour course will look at the requirements set forth by Senate Bill 367. SB 367 creates and amends law related to the Kansas juvenile justice system, as follows: The Attorney General must collaborate with the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center and the State Board of Education to promulgate rules and regulations by January 1, 2017, creating skill development training for responding effectively to misconduct in school while minimizing student exposure to the juvenile justice system. Such training must include information on adolescent development, risk and needs assessments, mental health, diversity, youth crisis intervention, substance abuse prevention, trauma-informed responses, and other evidence-based practices in school policing to mitigate student juvenile justice exposure. The superintendent (or designee) of each school district and any law enforcement officer assigned primarily to a school must complete this training.
