From Jim Gerl's Special Education Law Blog
March 6, 2015
More and more these days, the special education caselaw is full of examples where police are called into schools to deal with kids with disabilities. This seems to be a trend.
A report this week by the President's Task Force on Twenty First Century Policing addresses several issues, including how police should deal with persons with disabilities. I believe that racial issues prompted this report, but it is good to see that interaction with persons with disabilities is on the radar.
You can review the report here.
A story about the report in Disability Scoop is available here.
