New Florida Law Requires More Security in Schools

By

A new Florida law requires counties to implement school resource officers for the 2018-2019 school year. This comes as a result of recent shootings in places like Parkland and Texas. With the end of the current school year approaching, Alachua County Public Schools is adding to its existing staff of school resource officers and limiting entry points to campus.

“My goal is to make sure that every one of my kids return home every single night to their parents,” said Teameika Trueluck, a Buchholz school resource deputy.
