Key West Police Chief Donie Lee wants to intensify efforts to ensure the safety of children in our schools. He will invite key stakeholders to meet next week to explore ways in which law enforcement and the schools can tighten security to keep tragedy from striking.
“We need to double down on what we’re doing,” he said. “We need to look at our capabilities, address the challenges, and implement any changes we can. We need to do all that we can do.”
Lee hopes to sit down with school administrators as well as mental health officials to explore every possibility of ensuring that gun violence does not occur in this community.
In addition to concrete efforts that can be accomplished on the ground, Chief Lee’s goal is also to send recommendations to our state and federal representatives.
