Orange County Approves $4 Million Plan for School Active Shooter Training
The Orange County, FL Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on a three-year, $4 million active-shooter training program for teachers and school officials.
The FBI, Orange County Sheriff's Department and other law enforcement agencies will provide the training.
"We are going to learn techniques from the best in law enforcement that will substantially increase the chance for everyone to get out alive during one of these horrendous tragedies," said supervisor Todd Spitzer in a statement.
The money will also go toward creating a system that measures student confidence and stress coping ability.
The program will be open to schools that request it.
