LCSO to hold school security briefings

-A A +A

By Lori Prevatt, Citizen Correspondent

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office is holding a community school security meeting Thursday, March 15, in the Chiefland Elementary School cafeteria at 6:30 p.m.

The meeting comes after Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 7026. The bill, signed March 9 by the governor is also referred to as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.

The bill addresses many concerns that were brought to light by the school shooting that took place Valentine’s Day.

According to the Florida Senate website, the bill will allow law enforcement officers to seize weapons from mentally ill persons and hold those weapons until those persons have received appropriate treatment.

Also, the bill calls for placement of extra resource officers, retired law enforcement officers, or school workers that volunteer to carry firearms in the schools solely for the protection of students and staff.
