Wednesday November 13th.   Active Shooter Presentation and Preparedness.   Lt. Chris Bratus will be giving a presentation on active shooter and preparedness.  This is a very in depth, straight forward presentation, and one that everyone should attend at some point not only to be aware of what is going on, but to better prepare themselves and their families for something that we all hope will never happen.  This topic has become a very real concern in today’s environment, so come out and learn the facts and how to keep you and your family safe.

Session are at 10am and again at 7pm at Police Headquarters, and approximately 2 hours in length.   Please RSVP but again, walk ins are welcome.  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it./908-876-3232  X1301)
