Franklin Police announce final 2017 offering of Active Shooter Emergency Response Seminar for Citizens
Tuesday, October 17
The Franklin Police Department is hosting our final Active Shooter Emergency Response Seminar for Citizens for the year on Tuesday, October 17, 2017. In an effort to accommodate a larger crowd, the seminar venue has been moved to Franklin’s Church of the City, whose staff has graciously opened their doors to the Department and the Franklin community to hear this important, life-saving information.
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, ways 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.
