05 May: Turner Measure Requiring Digital Fingerprints Of All School Employees Through Committee

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner that would require all public school employees to undergo electronic fingerprinting was approved by the Senate Education Committee today.

“When it comes to protecting New Jersey’s students, we should seek out the latest technology to keep them safe,” said Senator Turner, D-Mercer and Chair of the Committee. “Electronic fingerprinting allows the State to be more comprehensive in their background checks and better equipped to investigate arrests after an individual has been hired to work in a public school.”
