After five bomb threats in four days in Brooksville at Central High School and Endeavor Academy yesterday a seventeen year old female student was arrested and charged with making a total of six false bomb threats. Estimates are only ten per cent showed up for classes on Thursday. The HSCO said she admitted to calling in the false threats, and Hernando County Sheriff Al Neinhause wants her charged as an adult.

Active shooter drills will be a part of the school day just as fire drills are before long across Tampa Bay. Some schools are already doing monthly drills, along with added security measures and the addition of more school resource officers. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told the Pinellas County Comissioners last week that it will cost almost $24 million additional dollars to put school resource officers in schools by July 1st. No action was taken on the issue, and workshops are scheduled for more discussion.
