Highlights:
  • Authorizes the governing board of any public or private college or university to designate 1 or more full-time faculty or staff members as campus protection officers (Sec. 173.2551).

  • Authorizes any person designated as a campus protection officer to carry a concealed firearm or a self-defense spray device on the campus (Sec. 173.2551).

  • Requires any full-time faculty or staff member of a college campus who seeks to be designated as a campus protection officer to request such designation in writing and submit it to the administrator responsible for public safety. Along with the request they must submit proof that they have a valid concealed carry endorsement or permit and a certificate of completion from a campus protection officer training program, approved by the director of the department of public safety (Sec. 173.2551).

  • Specifies that a campus protection officer is not permitted to allow any firearm or self-defense spray device out of his or her personal control while that firearm or device is on campus-owned property (Sec. 173.2551).

  • Authorizes a campus protection officer to have the same authority to detain or use force against any person on campus as provided to someone under chapter 563, which relates to peace officers (Sec. 173.2551).
