SUNRISE, Fla. | Official: 911 issues delayed response to school massacre
SUNRISE, Fla. — Quirks in a Florida city’s 911 system hampered law enforcement’s response to February’s mass shooting at a high school.
That’s the position of Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chair of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission that is investigating the shooting that left 17 dead.
Parkland gets police service from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, and fire from the neighboring city of Coral Springs. Cellular 911 calls from Parkland go to Coral Springs.
