This program will allow police to have probable cause to stop underage people to determine if they are skipping school. If the ordinance is passed, offers will work in conjunction with school staff.
“It helps when we have the police department being able to assist and bring them back to schools,” said Ed Cora, superintendent for Guadalupe Union School District.
