Florida law enforcement officers will be trained to spot potential mass shooters before they act under a program rolling out this summer.
Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s top law enforcement officer spoke Wednesday at a news conference outside Orlando.
Under the program, Florida will be the first state in the nation to have a statewide plan for identifying threats and taking action to intervene.
The program starts in July with the introduction of a curriculum for recruits at police academies around the state. Training will then be offered to patrol officers and deputies, investigators and law enforcement executives.
