School Shootings Public Safety Meeting is Jan. 31

Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018
Public Safety Meeting
5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Massac County High School
2841 Old Marion Rd, Metropolis

Hosted by the Metropolis Police Department

Attention: Parents of school-age children attending schools in Metropolis. Due to the fact there have been two school shootings  in our region recently, Metropolis Police Director Masse has spoken with officials at Massac Unit 1. Masse will be presenting a town hall type meeting to address concerns from the First Responder point of view and also to address concerns from  parents of students.

This meeting will be open to the public, but the department is reaching out to the parents of students as the priority. There are no sporting events scheduled for this day, so hopefully most parents will be available to attend.
