IMPORTANT: If you live anywhere near N Kentucky, this coming Tuesday, we are presenting the POST Program to the Pendleton County School Board at 6 pm at Sharps Middle School. We have a couple members of the school board there that think favorable of the POST Program so we need all the support we can get. Please attend if you can and if not, please pray for success.
Pendleton County School Board Meeting for School POST Presentation
Tuesday, April 24th at 6 pm
Sharps Middle School, Falmouth, KY
The POST Program will work for three reasons:
- Deterrence – We believe a sign posted on the door stating, “This school participates in the POST Program – Teachers and staff are trained and armed,” as well as public knowledge of the program will most likely prevent the shooting from occurring in the first place. Recent active shooters are not looking for a fight, they are looking for victims.
- Immediate Armed Response – in the event of a shooting there would be multiple individuals on campus that can stop the threat. These individuals would be volunteers, scrutinized through screenings, interviews, background checks, and thorough training. They would be armed, but the handgun would be concealed and the identity of the participants would not be publicly known.
- Thoroughness of training – unlike most of the other programs available, POST requires extensive training and regular recertification. We recognize this is a big commitment by those choosing to volunteer for post certification, but we think all can agree that when it comes to the safety of our children, the investment of time is worth it.
