for the crash. joins us live from ashland to explain how this law is affecting campus security at southern oregon university. right now, i'm in front of the campus safety office at s-o-u. the people who work here tell me kaylee's law changes what they're allowed to do on campus. and how they're supposed to dress. this way students can tell the difference between campus security and police officers. take a look at the s-o-u campus security uniform. it's dark blue with a patch on the arm. the law means campus security will have to create a new uniform. so they don't look like police officers. campus security tells me they're considering getting polo shirts. and making a different patch that will use s-o-u's color scheme. kaylee's law also restricts campus security's ability to stop and frisk people. campus security says this might affect their ability to keep the university safe. while we can still go up and say hey what are you doing we figure out what's going on. now, we don't have that. so i think that'll impact us because they'll have the ability to wander away. people who want to work for campus security will need to have a background check before they're hired. sou already does that. but the university will have to add a psychiatric evaluation to the process. s-o-u's campus security team tells me that overall, kaylee's law is a good thing. especially the mandatory background and psychiatric tests. this team is also working on other ways to keep students safe. in about thirty minutes i'll tell you about an app they're developing to help students
