Parkland College's police department will conduct active shooter/hostile intruder training Friday, March 19, while the college is closed for spring holiday.
Parkland College Public Safety Department Interim Chief Jared Ping said his officers will hold their training session throughout the campus, from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The main campus will be closed to all faculty, staff, and students. However, the training will not affect the Parkland on Mattis complex or scheduled athletic events.
"We want to announce this to ensure that our community members are not alarmed when they see a more active police presence that day," he said.
Please contact Sgt. Ping at 217/351-2884 for further information.
