Private university police bill headed to Indiana governor

A bill that would exempt police departments at the University of Notre Dame and other private colleges from following the same crime reporting requirements as public colleges is headed to Gov. Mike Pence for his signature.

HB 1022, sponsored by state Rep. B. Patrick Bauer, D-South Bend, was approved 49-1 Tuesday by the Indiana Senate. It passed the House unanimously in January. Bauer this week filed a concurrence, which signals agreement with a Senate amendment.
