‘Scathing’ report: School guards got shoddy training

“What’s to me most appalling is that the school district paid $3,000 per person for this inadequate, inferior training that was, it looks like, just done to check a box and get people through,” said Gualtieri, who is sheriff of Pinellas County and chairman of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission. “If the school district put these unqualified people into schools to protect kids, people who couldn’t even qualify on the firearms under the standards that are established, that could be very dangerous.”
