Polk County school 'Guardians' learn to engage active shooters

Polk County first in Florida to train armed school guardians

..."The guardian is better trained," Judd said. "The guardian receives 25% more firearms training than a certified police officer in the state of Florida and has to qualify five points higher than a certified police officer."...

...Around 150 civilians - some young, some old, some new to law enforcement, some former military - are undergoing 144 hours of intensive tactical training, including gun safety, gun handling, shoot/no-shoot scenario training, simulation training, live-fire training and classroom training...

..."These individuals will be responsible for working with the districtís Safe Schools division to provide security to our campuses, conduct necessary drills, oversee crime prevention initiatives and programs with students, conduct surveillance and other security-related tasks," a Polk County Sheriff's Office spokesman said...

...Judd said more than 500 people applied to the school district to become school guardians, but only 150 passed background checks, psychological screenings and drugs tests and were selected to begin training.

2. 150 out of more than 500 applicants passed tests and screening?

At least they are selective, I hope itís selective enough.

8. When you take the required 500+/-+ hours

Of classes & training, and pass your finals and physical tests- you are Ďcertifiedí by the state.

4. Training?

Meet a man a few years back that had a cast on his left hand. I asked him about it and he said he shot himself will cleaning his pistol. Then he told me he has been an NRA safety instructor for 35 years.

5. I know someone who worked for Sheriff Judd

Everything I've read and heard tells me he's a reasonable guy.



OTOH, expecting every potential school shooter to be relieved of any weapon access before the next school shooting seems entirely realistic.
