LANSING, Ill. (January 17, 2018) – The Lansing Police Department will host a class specifically for businesses who have a physical building located in Lansing. The class will be led by Sgt. Gabe Barajas of LPD’s Support Services.

“The ways you’ll respond to an active shooter in a school setting are different than the ways you’ll respond as adults in businesses,” explains Barajas, who also does drills in schools twice a year. “It’s a little different mentality.” Barajas also hopes to set up a similar training specifically for churches, where other factors might affect appropriate response.

Training will take place at the Lansing Police Department, 2710 170th Street in Lansing. Space is limited, so interested participants should enroll early.
