October 21, 2019 Active Shooter Presentation

What will you do if you hear gunshots while you are at your doctor’s office, grocery store or place of worship? Officers from the Buffalo Grove Police Department will discuss active shooters and provide guidance on how to recognize threats before they occur, how to react in a manner that may not only save yourself, but the lives of others, and what to expect from law enforcement personnel when they respond. This class is designed to empower everyone, regardless of age or physical limitations, to respond with confidence if you find yourself in such a heinous event. This program will be held at the Vernon Area Public Library, 300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire, from 7-8 PM. Register online at, by telephone at 224.543.1485, or in person at any public service desk in the library. It is co-sponsored by the Vernon Area Public Library and Buffalo Grove Park District.
