Florida launches controversial database of student information aimed at identifying threats
After a former student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year, Florida public school children are being watched more closely. Police in Miami-Dade and Broward counties now have real-time access to tens of thousands of surveillance cameras in schools. Miami-Dade's fleet of nearly 1,100 school buses is outfitted with GPS tracking devices. An app created by the state in the wake of Parkland lets people throughout Florida anonymously report tips about possible threats to campuses.
