Montclair, NJ -- Montclair Deputy Chief of Police Tracy Frazzano has been invited to speak at an Active Shooter Response Summit, hosted by Christ Church (140 Green Pond Road, Rockaway), on Thursday, March 9. The event is open to the public and starts at 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:00 p.m.).

 

“Christ Church wanted to sponsor an event that would bring the whole community together to provide information to the public on preparing and responding to an active shooter event,” said Deputy Chief Frazzano. “This will give attendees a closer look at all that is involved on the part of public safety officials and will also offer input from someone who was in the midst of the tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook School in 2012.”

 

Deputy Chief Frazzano will join Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Sheriff James M. Gannon, OEM Director Jeff Paul, State Education Commissioner Kimberly Harrington and other law enforcement, education and Homeland Security leaders to discuss the unthinkable -- what to do if confronted by a shooter.
