Franklin Police offer additional active shooter emergency response seminar for citizens: March 5

Post Date:02/22/2018 5:00 PM

The Franklin Police Department is hosting an Active Shooter Emergency Response Seminar for Citizens on Monday, March 5, 2018, at Franklin Police Headquarters.

*The March 6 offering is full – no additional seats are available*

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.

Monday, March 5, 2018
6-7:30 pm

900 Columbia Avenue
Franklin, Tennessee

Franklin parents, teens, employers, school and church leaders,
any member of the Franklin community.

No cameras or recording devices will be allowed into the training location. Media wishing to interview Franklin Police staff, instructors, or attendees needs to make prior arrangements with Franklin Police Public Affairs, Lt. Charles Warner.
