Due to overwhelming response, registration for our class on Tuesday, October 9 is now closed. The Franklin Police Department has scheduled our 11th 1.5 hour seminar, Monday, October 16, designed to help keep citizens safe during the unthinkable.

It can happen anytime, anywhere – and it does. Acts of mass violence in public places and work settings continue to rock communities throughout the world to their core. “Franklin Police Officers always stand at the ready to deal with the unthinkable,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “Community preparedness, combined with law enforcement response to these situations, can make a difference – and save lives.”

Franklin Police Officers will share with citizens, employers, and community leaders, way to improve their response to an unforeseen, mass violence encounter. During our one and a half hour seminar, officers will discuss three main, national best practices:
Avoid, Deny, Defend.


The seminar is free and open to the public – but pre-registration is required.

Monday, October 16, 2017
6-7:30 pm
