A Florida officer, who was fired after ‘failing to coordinate an immediate response’ to the Parkland shooting in 2018 and instead cowered behind a car, will be reinstated.
Sgt Brian Miller was terminated from the Broward Sheriff’s Office in June 2019 after being suspended for several months.
During the investigation, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission found that the Broward Sheriff’s Office displayed deficiencies in everything from training and command to individual performance in its response to the massacre that saw Nikolas Cruz shoot dead 14 students and three faculty members on February 14, 2018.
‘Miller failed to coordinate or direct deputies’ actions and did not direct or coordinate an immediate response into the school,’ a report from the commission said.
‘Sergeant Miller’s actions were ineffective and he did not properly supervise the scene,’ the report added.
But on Wednesday it was revealed that despite his actions that day, he will be getting his job back. Miller will be reinstated with full back pay and seniority.
