The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission will discuss Tuesday how the Broward County schools and others decide what action to take when they become aware of threats.

Investigators have said Nikolas Cruz made threats before the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead and 17 wounded.

Also on the agenda are 911 and emergency dispatch systems, Florida's gun purchase laws and mental health programs as the commission meets through Thursday.

The commission meets monthly and is composed of law enforcement, education and mental health officials along with legislators and the parents of student victims. It will prepare a report by Jan. 1.
