Add Peace Officer to the Behavioral Emergency Staff Type Dropdown
Per CDE the restraints and seclusions made by peace officers should not be reported to CALPADS. We do know that it is required for Civil Rights Data Collection. Can a code be added to the BER Staff Type dropdown to identify mechanical restraint instances performed by peace officers?
Hello, this item has been completed in the 06/18/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
Behavioral Emergency – A new field has been added to this page to allow tracking the reason of the restraint/seclusion. There are no default/state codes. All the codes are user-defined and they are not reported to CALPADS.
Additionally, after clarification from CDE, the Staff Type description has been adjusted to “02 – District police officer, school resource officer (SRO) or other Peace Officer NOT performing an arrest”. Any BER record containing this code will not be reported to CALPADS. If a student is restrained while being arrested, a disposition code for Arrested should be entered, not a restraint record.
