Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed to make emergency response to school shootings a top priority of the Justice Department.
Speaking at the Major County Sheriffs of America Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday, Sessions said this type of violence happens too often and we need to confront the problem.
He called the Florida mass shooting a tragedy, and admitted the country needs to do a better job at protecting its citizens.
Sessions said the Trump administration is hard at work to reduce the rise of violent crimes as the Justice Department indicted a record number of violent criminals accused of homicide and drug trafficking last year.

President Trump signed a proclamation to honor the 17 victims killed in Wednesday’s massacre.
The president ordered all flags to be flown at half staff until Monday, February 19, and said the entire nation — with one heavy heart — is praying for the victims and families affected by the tragedy.
He said no child, teacher, or parent should be in danger at an American school, and he’s making it a top priority to make schools safer.
He directly spoke to the nation’s children, saying they’re never alone, there are people who love them, and will do everything to protect them.
