WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (PA-03) hosted a public forum yesterday morning with U.S. Attorney Scott Brady and personnel from the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) for local school administrators to learn the latest expertly-developed best practices for increasing school safety and implementing targeted violence prevention plans. The event was held at the Passavant Center at Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania, and was attended by administrators from numerous school districts in (and outside of) the Third Congressional District, as well as many local law enforcement officials.

Statement by Rep. Kelly:

“There is nothing more important than the safety of our children. This forum was about making sure we are doing everything in our power – as teachers, police officers, and public officials – to guarantee that students can be completely free from danger when they go to school. I was very proud to host this event and thank every person who attended from both near and very far.”
