A proposed law, named after Kaylee Sawyer, a Bend-woman murdered in 2016, was signed into law today by Governor Kate Brown.
Sawyer was abducted and murdered by a Central Oregon Community College security guard, and the proposed law aims to restrict the power of campus security guards, distinguish them from local law enforcement, and require mental health and background checks.
The law was proposed and backed by Sawyer’s family and law enforcement officials from Central Oregon and a ceremonial signing with Sawyer’s family is scheduled for the summer.
Sheriffs from across the state of Oregon, including our own Sheriff L. Shane Nelson from Deschutes County, participated in a campaign to promote a new school safety tip line for Oregon students.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan sat down with local law enforcement today to learn more about Safe Oregon.
Deschutes County has seen an increase in sleep-related deaths in infants. Between 2012 and 2017 fourteen infants in Deschutes County died in their sleep due to suffocation or strangulation. Five of those deaths occurred in 2016 as compared to just one death in 2012.
In order to help counter-act this trend, Central Oregon health care providers are working to raise awareness about safe sleeping practices.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan spoke with one local health provider about how to best keep sleeping babies safe.
Highly restrictive abortion bans have been proposed, and in some cases passed, in states across the country, reigniting the debate over abortion in recent weeks. Pro-choice activists across the country have organized protests, including one right here in Bend. Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan spoke with one such activist and also with an anti-abortion activist to hear both sides of the issue.
