"(CNN)When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN."

"(USA Today)  Broward County, Florida, Sheriff Scott Israel makes it clear: ex-school deputy Scot Peterson should have gone into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and shot and killed gunman Nikolas Cruz on Feb. 14. "When we in law enforcement arrive at an active-shooter, we go in and address the target and that's what should have been done," he said at a Thursday press conference."

I would like the Federal Government/US DOJ to create an award:

For service well below what is considered dereliction and beyond, to avoid negligently the call of duty or action; and Exhibiting exceptional lack of training, guidance to sworn duties, extraordinary indecisiveness in the presence of danger.  To show complete lack of courage or intestinal fortitude when presented with extreme adversity or odds; Unusual lack of swiftness to action, only because the fear for his or her personal safety and not the defenseless they are charged to protect, in an attempt to save their own one-self and show complete dereliction of duty to protect human life. It can be called the Medal of Cowardice (MOC).

There is currently an Medal of Valor for Public Safety Officers, and the Medal of Cowardice is a COMPLETE 180 DEGREE or Opposite of that ward. Along with the MOC, I would also like to see charges filed to the Deputies who were on seen and failed to act, for dereliction of duty.  Just like when an Officer makes the wrong decision to use deadly force or is found to be negligent in the performance of their duties, murder charges can be filed for such actions.  Please refer to the official criteria from the Department of Justice on Medal of Valor guidance. 

Medal of Valor Overview
Every day, public safety officers risk their lives to protect America’s citizens and communities. To honor that commitment, Congress passed The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Act of 2001, which created the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor, the highest national award for valor by a public safety officer. The medal is awarded annually by the President or Vice President to public safety officers who have exhibited exceptional courage, regardless of personal safety, in the attempt to save or protect human life.

Medal of Valor
A “public safety officer” is a person (living or deceased) who is serving or has served in a public agency, with or without compensation, as a firefighter; law enforcement officer, including a corrections, court, or civil defense officer; or emergency services officer, as determined by the U.S. Attorney General.

An act of valor is defined as:

Above and beyond the call of duty; and
Exhibiting exceptional courage, extraordinary decisiveness and presence of mind.
unusual swiftness of action, regardless of his or her personal safety, in an attempt to save or protect human life.
