HB 3526 would expand the scope of provisions governing the response of a peace officer after locating a person listed on the Texas Crime Information Center's child safety check alert list, as well as make those provisions relating to removal of a located child from the alert list applicable to a peace officer, parole officer, juvenile probation officer, juvenile supervision officer, juvenile correctional officer, juvenile parole officer, supervision officer, or county jailer.
This bill would also expand training requirements regarding the alert list to community supervision officers, juvenile probation officers, juvenile supervision officers, juvenile correctional officers, and juvenile parole officers. Peace officers and reserve law enforcement officers would also be required to complete minimum school curriculum requirements on the child safety check alert list.
