The McPherson Police Department will host a free training addressing active shooter situations. The two-hour session is open to all McPherson business representatives and will focus on how to create an active shooter emergency operations plan. Instructors are FBI Special Agent Michael R. Miller and McPherson Assistant Police Chief Mikel T. Golden.
The training is Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at the Kansas Municipal Utilities (KMU) building. Seating is unlimited but registration is required to help determine print material quantities. Registration can be completed at www.mcpcity.com/171/Police-Department.
McPherson Police Chief Robert McClarty talked about why he thinks this will be such an important event for the citizens of McPherson.
“I think it will be well-worth everybody in this room’s time and everyone else in our community,” McClarty said.
Mayor Thomas Brown also addressed this training and why the McPherson community should take part in it.
“These incidents happen more frequently. We want to be prepared just as much as we can be prepared,” Brown said.
