When seconds count, are you prepared?

In its quest to make Caddo Parish and the surrounding area a safer place to live, work and worship, the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office is offering three special awareness training classes for churches, synagogues, and mosques.

The free course is designed to help places of worship and the public prepare for an active shooter event. Instruction will cover the Louisiana law on concealed carry in churches, procedures for concealed carry inside a religious facility, suggestions for security at your place of worship, and church emergency plans.

Southwood High School Auditorium, 9000 Walker Road in Shreveport, 6-8 p.m., December 12;

Northwood High School Auditorium, 5939 Old Mooringsport Road in Shreveport, 6-8 p.m., December 14; and
