Juvenile intake and petition information; threat assessment teams. Provides that juvenile intake officers shall notify chiefs of campus police departments of any petition alleging that a juvenile known to be enrolled in such institution of higher education has committed an act that would be a crime if committed by an adult. Intake officers must also notify any appropriate school division superintendent, the chief of campus police, and the local chief of police or sheriff whenever the officers reasonably believe that a juvenile poses a credible danger of serious bodily injury or death to other persons. The bill also provides exceptions to the confidentiality of records maintained by the Department of Juvenile Justice to allow such records to be shared with threat assessment teams established by any school division or by any institution of higher education.
