It’s sad and disturbing that people can get shot while peacefully praying at a house of worship. Under those conditions and given the recent shooting at a Texas church that killed 24 and injured over 20, Senator James Sanders Jr. is hosting a safety training for faith-based leaders in the community so they can learn how to protect themselves and their congregations against a first-person shooter attack. It will be part of Senator Sanders’ monthly Interfaith Clergy Breakfast.
It will be on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at St. Anthony’s Of Padua: 127-17 135th Avenue, South Ozone Park, NY 11417 from 8:30-11am. There will be a presentation by NYPD Shield, the Police Department’s latest counterterrorism program, and much more. Please RSVP by calling Senator Sanders’ District office at 718-523-3069.
NOTE: This event is open to members of the clergy ONLY.
The NYPD Shield Presentation is CLOSED to the MEDIA.
