        FortifyFL is a new system bein” mm g implemented statewide to increase student safety across all schools. It stemmed from past nationwide events that have brought attention to the need for better and different security methods. The FortifyFL website and app allows the school faculty, staff, and students to report potential crimes, threats, or suspicious activity anonymously, which is then brought to the attention of law enforcement officers and school officials.

        In the wake of the tragedy that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, a new safety act was enacted, called the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act (MSDHSPSA). The MSDHSPSA legislation works to make schools across Florida more secure and is working to prevent firearms from being used by people who are unfit to carry them. The legislation requires Florida schools to promote the use of FortifyFL among teachers and students. 

        “I’ve already received one tip from FortifyFL,” said Officer John Brock. “It’s going to be helpful as long as it’s used in the right way. New security being added into Boca High is Darwyn Allen upfront who checks in any visitors, writes their tags down, and lets us know who’s on campus. We also have a couple of extra security guys on campus and there are two new police officers here this year. And of course, making sure students are wearing their ID badges is being used to ensure the security of Campus.”

        FortifyFL can be accessed online as well as through the app, which is available for android and IOS devices.Through the app users can contact 911 and submit an anonymous or non-anonymous tip. If the users desire, they can also submit a photo or a video in with their tip.

        “I think it’s a really good idea, I think having access to this app will help our community become safer,” said sophomore Holly DeMaria

        The word about FortifyFL is continuing to spread, making the environment safer around Boca High, where both students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.
