Florida Crime Prevention and Training Institute - School Resource Officer Practitioner Designation

Cross, 45, admitted that he had a terrible habit of fidgeting with his weapon,
Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said Wednesday.
“Ultimately, it comes down to, if you leave the gun in the holster, it’s not going to go off,” Nocco said.
"Our members are trained on our weapons on proper handling. The actions the former member displayed are nothing that we train."


"We train for the opposite, that every time you use that weapon, you have to remember it is a deadly weapon," he added.

He said the officer was terminated for "conduct unbecoming and use and mishandling of a weapon." The officer had been placed on administrative leave pending investigation.

The sheriff's office presented the case to the State Attorney's Office, which decided against criminal charges.

Is a Florida school resource officer the same as a teacher now?
I am sure they will try and tie the two together.
Is this really another Florida man story?
