In the wake of recent events involving the tragic shooting in Buffalo of shoppers at a supermarket, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office reminds county residents and businesses that we provide active shooter training at no cost for hospitals, schools, houses of worship, and businesses.
The Sheriff’s Office will perform a site assessment regarding the physical security of the establishment and provide suggestions and recommendations to enhance existing measures, and will also provide training focusing on managerial concerns and issues, as well as focused preparation and response training for the workforce.
“We urge everyone, including business organizations, to take advantage of this free service to address security concerns and support your establishment in developing reliable plans to address be utilized “emergency situations,” said Sheriff Kevin McConville. “Advance Planning and preparation will likely prepare your staff to respond in the best possible manner and hopefully reduce the potential negative impacts that may otherwise accompany the event.”
