The Franklin Police Department has scheduled two, free 1.5 hour seminars designed to help keep citizens safe during the unthinkable.
It can happen anytime, anywhere – and it does. Acts of mass violence in public places continue to rock communities to their core. “Franklin Police Officers 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 both of the one and a half hour seminars, officers will discuss three main, national best practices: Avoid, Deny, Defend.
The seminars are free and open to the public – but pre-registration is required.
