Active Incident Training by Lynn Police

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, family members and everyone effected by the recent shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  The recent tragedies in Tennessee and Texas last year and Pittsburgh a few days ago demonstrate the need for some type of training to make the community feel safe.  It is unfortunate as a society we have to prepare for such evil acts of violence.  The Lynn Police Department would like to offer active incident training for the faith based community.  I have included Officer Ron Brown and Officer John Mackin in this email as they are the officers that offer active incident training.  Please reach out to them to schedule it if interested.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me by email or phone.
