Captain Jan Jordan was identified by Broward County Sheriff’s Office Monday to Fox News as the official who ordered deputies to form a perimeter outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as shooting was transpiring on February 14th, instead of following standard procedure of immediate entry.

Per The Miami Herald, “Capt. Jan Jordan, commander of BSO’s Parkland district, gave the order, the log shows, identifying her by her police call sign. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel has said BSO training and nationwide active-shooter procedure call for armed law enforcement officers to confront shooters immediately rather than secure a scene.”

Jordan applied for employment in the weeks following Sheriff Scott Israel’s first elected term to office on Dec. 21, 2012, and listed Israel as referral in the application.

President of the Broward Counties Sheriff’s Deputies Association Jeff Bell has verified the legitimacy of the log given to Fox News. “This was the wrong command to be given,” He has also called on the Sheriff’s Office to release the log and how the shooting was handled. “Just come clean. Release everything. Why not be transparent on this, so we can have the deputies stop being called cowards in public?”

The newest claims comes amidst skepticism over response time and prior claims of EMS crews having approval for entry to the site denied upon arrival at the scene.
