Polk County Sheriff’s Office Steps up to Launch Florida’s First Sentinel Program

Recommended Posts



Florida’s Southeastern University and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office have teamed up for the state’s first Sentinel Program, which trains staff and faculty to carry a concealed firearm on campus.


“The number one question asked by parents when visiting our university was about safety,” said Dr. Chris Own, executive vice president at Southeastern University. “It’s a no-brainer for us. Our motto is ‘students first.'”


Although carrying a gun on campus is against Florida law, Sheriff Grady Judd told Ginny Simone that he will swear in the trained staff as special deputies and give them the authority to stop an active shooter on campus.


As Judd noted, “There’s nothing more important in the entire world than our children, and we’re there to stand in the gap between good and evil.”

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
