SARASOTA & MANATEE COUNTIES, FL (WWSB) - In the weeks after the Parkland massacre, the state legislature passed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School Safety Act which, among other things, requires a school resource officer in every school. School districts across the state, including Sarasota and Manatee, had to scramble to find and hire qualified candidates. 

On Thursday on ABC7 at 7, Alan Cohn will be joined at the trapezoid by Curt Lavarello, the Executive of the School Safety Advocacy and Anthony Schembri, the former head of the Juvenile Justice System in Florida.
