FLORIDA TODAY caught up with Andrea Alford, Brevard Public Schools security director, for an inside look at school safety.

"Certainly we saw a shift after Columbine (in 1999)," said Andrea Alford-Palmer, director of district and school security for the Brevard Public Schools.
Alford-Palmer said such reporting is now mandatory, administrators have been trained better, and resource officers help streamline the process.
That close coordination might not have occurred five years ago, Alford-Palmer said.

If the district goes ahead with drug-sniffing dogs, Andrea Alford, director of district security for Brevard Public Schools, said the animals likely would sniff around lockers, classrooms, common areas and parking lots. The dogs would not search a student unless there was imminent danger.

"It may be a one-in-a-million chance that a K-9 would be allowed to sniff a person," Alford said.
Alford said she occasionally gets calls from principals asking whether they can use drug dogs and she always tells them "no. On at least one occasion, though, a principal didn't ask -- and a drug-sniffing dog was brought on Viera High's campus to search the parking lot. The dog picked up scents on two vehicles, which were then searched by an assistant principal. Ultimately, nothing was found.
Alford wasn't aware of the March 4 incident until asked by FLORIDA TODAY and was upset when she confirmed it happened.
"The sweep was coordinated at the school level by the principal and the school resource officer, and it was not authorized at the district level," she said. "The area superintendent is conducting an inquiry as to why this occurred without prior approval, which considering our present district practice, would not have been granted."
The district does occasionally use canines to search for explosive devices, but that is rare, Alford said.

"The City of Palm Bay's suggestion was to have schools hire hourly security," said Andrea Alford, Director of District and School Security. "However, the SRO Program is not a "security" program. The officers develop meaningful bonds with students based on trust that foster students to make positive choices. Alford said, "I am saddened that the City of Palm Bay would pass the responsibility of the SRO Program solely onto the district.
