Israel had created the department's active-shooter policy which obviously let the community down. "I understand it's easier to say "Suspend Sheriff Israel" than it is to address the real problem: The problem around this nation of gun violence".

The commission noted that a written policy saying that Broward County deputies "may" confront active shooters, rather than "shall", provided an excuse for not entering the school to confront the shooter. Israel has said none of those contacts warranted an arrest.
Commissioners also concluded that the department's active shooter training had not been effective.
