A Little over a decade ago, the NYPD took over training for School Safety Agents.
Since then parents, students and civil rights groups say they are too aggressive with students and want them reined in.
The City Council had the first hearing on a bill that would hold Safety Agents more accountable for their actions and more than 100 supporters rallied on the steps on City Hall urging council to pass it.
