11:12 pm
thing, but at certain schools
11:13 pm

11:16 pm
>> you have a juvenile record. >> reporter: deciding when to involve police can vary from school to school. san jose unified placed officers at 14 schools. but last year we discovered there's no written policy to detail what should those officers be doing on campus. >> as much as this is affecting our children, it's also affecting the officers. if an officer is going to become a canine handler or go into nar cot -- narcotics, they receive very specific training. but we're sticking officers in school with no additional training. it's not okay. >> the department of justice recommended 40 hours of additional training but the san jose police department only requires 30 minutes. >> we just contract with their
11:17 pm
officers. we can't make them train their officers. >> the san jose unified school district court last year referred 203 students to law enforcement, down from 283 the year before. but certain students are still being impacted at disproportionately high rates. hispanic students like kai, represent 73% of students sent to the police. >> we don't focus on arresting or sending kid away. that's completely counter to what an educator should do. >> but that's what's happening. >> not in my school district. >> in a single year, 283 kids were referred to police. >> okay. >> so it is happening. >> kids are cited on campuses sometimes, yes. >> do you know this could give them a criminal record. >> i know what happens when i
11:18 pm
issue my own consequences. i don't know what happens when police issue their consequence. >> so you have no idea these kids are getting criminal record? >> i wouldn't know that one way or the other. >> but don't you head discipline for the district? >> if consequences go beyond that to the legal realm, i wouldn't know. >> his mother worries about his future. >> wherever his career will take him, if any of this information is pulled up, it doesn't explain that my child was sliding on the grass at lunchtime. all someone is going to see is trespassing. >> san jose police tells us its officers generally look to school administrators to find out when it is appropriate to give a student a juvenile citation but the officers do have the final say. following our investigation, san jose p.d. hopes to have a written policy in place by next school year to detail the
11:19 pm
responsibility of the school-based officers. and some of those officers will get the 40 hours of recommended training instead of the current standard of just 30 minutes. >> thank you very much. very enlightening. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call or send bigad an e-mail. >> now checking in with chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. looks like we have some rain this weekend? >> i want to start right off with what you can expect for the morning. the north bay down to 43 degrees tomorrow. a mostly clear start, low 40s for they behave and the south bay beginning -- the largest change is the high pressure starting to arrive. mainly it will import a lot of hot air, pushing that storm track to the north. you get warm air from this but we're looking to see a change in the wind. that will be key to getting our
11:20 pm
temperatures to bump up. you can see for tomorrow morning, it's still more onshore. that's a cooler wind across bait area. watch the directional change as we head through the afternoon. it's more out of the north and the east, gusting 15 to about 25 miles per hour. so the dryer and warmer wind will result. and temperatures are going up some 10 dwres across the bay area. it going to be comfortable. i think we have a beautiful way coming your way. in san jose 72 degrees tomorrow, back to morgan hill 71, sunshine all around here for most of the peninsula. we'll have palo alto at 72 degrees. san ma tay owe, san francisco a little cloud cover for the marina and 63 but then back towards the financial district, it will be warmer, sunnier and 68. our warmist microclimate will be
11:21 pm
across napa and santa rosia 74 and 75 respectively, oakland a beautiful date at 72 and the trivalley, more mid to low 70s. check out the climb in temperatures for season fran. 66 for the average tomorrow. then we go to 72 on saturday, 77 on sunday, for the north bay 85 by sunday, south bay 85 as well. so a real nice next couple of days coming our way. the only problem tomorrow will be some of that wind. >> get ready for that warmup. up next, grab a seat on bart but don't grab more than one. the new rule that could have you paying hundreds in fines. >> and we have jimmy. >> tonight we have hugh lorie and senator ted cruz! do not change the channel, it's a good one! fighting sophisticated criminals
