ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain is encouraging the public to attend active shooter presentations to raise awareness and provide tactical preparedness direction for businesses, schools and churches, he announced in a news release.

Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Williams conducts the active shooter presentations.

Noting the recent mass shooting in Aurora, Hain encouraged the public to take advantage of this service, because firearm violence is possible anywhere, the release stated.

The Sheriff’s office will be hosting multiple two-hour presentations in March. The presentations are restricted to adults only because of graphic video content.

An updated schedule of classes will be posted on the sheriff’s website, kanesheriff.com.

The program is also available for large groups at preferred locations by scheduling with Williams at williamskevin@co.kane.il.us.

The Sheriff’s office will also present options for active shooter first-aid kits to be stored in a church, school or business.

Deputies can also be scheduled for standby for businesses when circumstances may become hostile, such as human resource action and employee removal, the release stated.

To schedule a deputy for standby support, call 630-232- 6840.
