Sheriff Gregory Tony calls for better training of Officers
The Sheriff said in light of last year’s high school massacre happening, he will improve training for deputies assigned to protect campuses.
The deputy assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland) last year failed to enter the building when a gunman was killing 17 people.
Several other deputies also stayed outside during the incident. Other Officers said “they could not remember when they last had active shooter training”, even though it had been in the previous few years.
Sheriff Tony said he will also make strides to improve the agency’s radio system, which went down after the shooting.
