Parkland parents fear school shooting safety is at risk without resource officers
As America takes a crucial and painful look at law enforcement practices some have called to remove police officers from schools. Stand with Parkland — The National Association of Families for Safe Schools, founded by families of the students and educators murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, believes it is a mistake to remove law enforcement from school campuses.
Since the shocking school massacre that took the lives of our beloved children and spouses in 2018, Stand with Parkland has fought to make our nation’s schools safer. Lessons from our tragedy in Parkland could not be more clear — school attacks must be stopped as quickly as possible. Every second counts for the innocent child, or teacher in the line of fire. This is not hyperbole; we live with the consequences of this fact every day.
