Hanover, VA – On March 3, 2016, the Sheriff’s Office hosted a presentation at the Hanover County Board of Supervisors conference room where we discussed “Civilian Response to an Active Shooter Situation.” Approximately 200 members of the Sheriff’s Office Business Watch, Worship Watch, and Neighborhood Watch groups were present.
The presentation focused on historical case studies and current best practices. This presentation was designed to make our community aware of what they can do to be better prepared and develop a plan should an event like this occur. Partnering with our community to deliver this information and the favorable response is indicative of the great partnerships we share in Hanover County. The Sheriff’s Office would like to extend its sincere appreciation to all who attended and made this presentation a success.
