BRIDGEWATER, NJ – The Somerset County Business Partnership and the Office of the Somerset County Sheriff will present a workshop, “Active Shooter in the Workplace: What You Can Do” on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 9-10:30 a.m. at the offices of the Business Partnership, 360 Grove St.

Hosted by the Business Partnership Human Resources Roundtable Group, the workshop will be led by Somerset County Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano and Dr. Rick Celecte, director of the Somerset County Police Academy.

Because emergencies involving violence are a reality in today’s workplace and are unpredictable and evolve quickly, businesses and non-profits should have a plan to respond to these emergencies and work to ensure positive outcomes. The workshop will offer various options to be addressed in the event of an active shooter emergency.

There is no charge to attend the workshop but pre-registration is recommended due to space limitations. Register may be done online at or by calling 908-218-4300.
