AZ Bill Would Force Teachers To Report “Potentially Dangerous Students” To Police

By Elisha Dorfsmith

A bill requiring teachers and health workers to report “potentially dangerous students” to police was approved by a 4-3 vote in the AZ House Public Safety, Military and Regulatory Affairs Committee yesterday.

HB2555 would require teachers and health workers who have reasonable cause to believe a client or student is a danger to themselves or others to report that person to the police. Once the police are called, they will get to decide if the child is a danger to self or others and if they think he/ she has any mental health issues.

Arrested students could be court-ordered into treatment.

Critics of the bill argued that it could require teachers to report students for throwing rocks or fighting on the playground. Representative Eddie Farnsworth of Gilbert said the committee was opening Pandora’s box.

The Department of Health Services will distribute an informational pamphlet to teachers and health workers on what to look out for but ultimately it will be up to the teacher/ health worker to use their own judgement. Since the law requires that a call be made, most teachers and health workers will error on the side of caution because they won’t want anything coming back on them if they somehow miss a dangerous child. Expect the police hotline to be buzzing!

The committee also approved HB2618 which would train police officers to recognize mental illness and potentially violent persons before they actually commit a crime.

Both bills will be scheduled for a full vote soon.

Insane bills like these are just more proof that politicians are potentially dangerous and may have “mental health” issues. Maybe we need a bill that requires teachers and health workers to report potentially dangerous politicians to the police?
