RETIRED POLICE CHIEF TESTIFIES BEFORE HOUSE

Retired Mont­pe­lier Police Chief Jeff Lehman tes­ti­fied Wednes­day before the Ohio House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives’ Edu­ca­tion Com­mit­tee in favor of House Bill 8.

If signed into law, the bill would give all school dis­tricts in Ohio the option of train­ing and arm­ing employ­ees, and would pro­tect dis­tricts from law­suits if any­one is injured by an employee dur­ing an active killer response.

Laws cur­rently on the books allow school boards to autho­rize con­cealed carry on their cam­puses, but House Bill 8 would ease lia­bil­ity con­cerns asso­ci­ated with grant­ing such permission.
