A state commission established after the Parkland school shooting will meet for three days this week in Sunrise to continue its broad investigation into what went wrong and how school security can be improved.
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission consists of public officials, law enforcement officers and parents of some of the murdered children.
This week’s agenda includes testimony on fire safety, school threat assessment, background checks for gun purchases, the 911 system, law enforcement radio systems and mental health treatment.
The committee has also scheduled closed sessions for Thursday to look at the interactions between the Stoneman Douglas killer Nikolas Cruz and Henderson Behavioral Health.
The commission, led by Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, has subpoena power and its own team of investigators. It is required to produce a report by the end of the year.
The meetings, which are open to the public, except for closed sessions, are being held at the BB&T Center.
The meetings will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and lasting for most of the day.
I'm wondering just how much shit this commission will did up. Also IF it will all be released or the worst of it swept under the rug.
