FortifyFL is a school-related suspicious activity reporting tool that allows Florida students and the community the ability to instantly relay information anonymously concerning unsafe, potentially harmful, dangerous, violent or criminal activities, or the threat of these activities, to the appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials.
By accessing FortifyFL, students can provide a description of the threat, share pics and videos and submit contact information (if he/she chooses to receive follow-up from law enforcement or school officials). Once information is transmitted via the application, the appropriate law enforcement and school administration entities are instantly contacted and provided with the submitted material.
FortifyFL was created and funded by the 2018 Florida Legislature as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. The application was named by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and developed by AppArmor. The Office of Attorney General, Department of Education and Florida Department of Law Enforcement coordinated its development and roll-out.
