Crisis Communication Response Paper

Commonly known as “the Valentine’s Day Massacre,” Marjory Stoneman Douglas was targeted by an active shooter on February 14, 2018.

This paper analyzes the Broward County Sheriff’s Office’s response and offers suggestions on what the department could have done to better communicate with the community after the tragedy.
