In Volusia County, Florida Sheriff Mike Chitwood is proud of one of his deputies that recently stopped a potential disturbance.
“Deputy Moore saw a volatile situation headed out of control, and he took quick action to stop it,” Chitwood said in a statement recently. “It worked, and no one was injured. I stand behind his decision. I commend him for restoring order to a potentially riotous incident and protecting the staff and students at Spruce Creek High School.”
“I wish those who are scrutinizing this deputy’s decision would apply some of the same scrutiny to the actions of the juvenile defendants who created this situation in the first place,” Chitwood said. “I want to say thank you to all the school resource deputies out there focused on the safety and security of every student, every day, no matter what.”
