The California Peace Officers Association has invited CAPIO members to attend this not-to-miss discussion on crisis communications. Less than six months after the Aurora theater shootings, the nation was again stunned when a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and committed one of the most horrific mass murders in American history, gunning down 20 children and six adults before killing himself. It was later learned he had also murdered his own mother. The killings horrified and traumatized the nation and again focused the attention of the world’s media on a random act of violence. Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police was the primary spokesperson for the event and will share his experience of handling this high-profile, emotional case.
