A Washington state bill, S.B. 5618, that would allow police officers, or "school resource officers," to search students without probable cause or parental consent, passed the State Senate Monday, 30-19.

The legislation would allow police to search a student's person, locker and possessions if they are believed to be violating the law or any school rule. Searches are already mandatory under state law if a student is suspected of possessing a firearm.
