Hello Brothers and Sisters,

I'm a School Resource Officer at an inner-city high school in Tampa and I'm trying to find out if any agencies in FL issue their SROs/SRDs long-guns and allow them to be kept/gun-safed in their respective schools during the school day.

With the ever-increasing threats we face both on the street and in our schools, it seems like a pretty good idea to not only have a long-gun but for an SRO/SRD, it would be an invaluable tool to engage and stop a threat at range, with accuracy, when that day comes. Particularly so, when considering that the active shooter/murderer is armed with a
long-gun(s) and possibly suited in body armor.

Thanks, God bless, take care of each other and be safe.
