Governor Brown Signs Kaylee’s Law

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.
