Local officials responded to the Parkland, Florida mass shooting with plans to amp up security in Collier and Lee County schools after the recent mass shooting that took place in Parkland, FL. State officials and President Trump have also made statements about safety protocol just one day after the event.
Collier County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Facebook “In light of the shooting, parents will notice a higher level of law enforcement presence on Collier County school campuses. Sheriff Kevin Rambosk and Superintendent Dr. Kamela Patton developed a plan for an enhanced level of security shortly after news of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting broke Wednesday afternoon.”
Both counties have protocols in place for active shooting events and officials plan to review the protocols with teachers and staff. President Trump said in his address that our nation’s number one priority will be keeping our schools safe and that he plans on “tackling” the issue of mental health.
