Sheriff's Office and School District meet to talk safety

Members of the Sheriff's Office met yesterday with school administration officials and school principals in an ongoing collaborative effort to make sure our county schools are as safe as they can be. The group discussed school safety plans and training for law enforcement and for teachers.

Sheriff's Office district captains and lieutenants have also been holding individual meetings with school principals in their areas, doing walk throughs of the campuses and making suggestions for increased security at each location. Deputies have also been instructed to visit the schools in their areas to get to know their layout. All deputies are currently undergoing active shooter training on school campuses throughout the Keys.

"We are committed to working with the School District on school safety," said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. "This in an important issue and we are doing all we can to make sure our children are safe while they attend school in Monroe County."
