The Florida Attorney General’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Department of Education launched Fortify Florida, a suspicious activity reporting app in Fall 2018. The app is now available to students across the state.
During the final weeks of the 2018 Legislative Session, The Attorney General’s Office worked to have language included in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act to fund the development of a mobile suspicious-activity reporting tool that allows students and the community to relay information anonymously concerning unsafe, potentially harmful, dangerous, violent, or criminal activities, or the threat of these activities, to appropriate public safety agencies and school officials.
Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School named the app and helped create the logo. The students chose the name FortifyFL as the purpose of the app truly represents the definition of the word fortify—to strengthen and protect against attack.
The FortifyFL app is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Tips can also be submitted online at GetFortifyFL.com.
