Scott travels to Tampa to highlight $500M school security, mental health plan Scott travels to Tampa to highlight $500M school security, mental health plan

"Parents shouldn't have to worry about whether they get up in the morning and send their child to a school whether they're going to be safe or not". Scott said the focus should instead be on law enforcement.

"There is nothing more important than to make sure these schools are safe", said Scott.

Scott vowed to crack down on school security, saying "our state will never be the same", after the February 14 shooting that left 17 people dead.

"We need to pass reforms to make it virtually impossible for anyone who has a mental illness or danger to themselves, ever to use a gun", Scott said.

He'll also require "school hardening" measures such as metal detectors, bullet-proof glass, steel doors and upgraded locks, with the Florida Department of Education applying minimum safety standards on schools by July 1.

Florida Governor Rick Scott outlined steps he is taking in response to the shootings two weeks ago in Parkland, Florida.

"Every other governor is on notice", Petty said. "We don't have any more time". Most First Coast schools and districts already have the drills.

"We will establish criminal penalties for threats to schools, like social media threats of shootings and bombings", Scott said. Much like (how) our airports (and) our seaports have increased security, so should our schools.

Gimenez said Miami-Dade police offered its assistance to the Broward Sheriff's Office immediately after the shooting and will continue to offer its support.
