Risk Protection Orders (RPO)

In 2018, The Florida Legislature passed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act in response to a tragic school shooting.  The law is designed to enhance public safety by restricting firearm and ammunition possession by a person who poses a danger to himself or herself or others.

What can you do if you believe someone poses a danger to himself or herself or others if he or she has access to firearms or ammunition?

Contact your local law enforcement office.  Only law enforcement may ask a court to enter a Risk Protection Order against someone who may be a danger to himself or herself or others.
