JCC implements new safety measures after deadly shootings

Posted: Updated:
OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

The recent shootings at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom have prompted JCC to implement new safety measures.

After consulting local authorities and national security experts like the FBI and Homeland Security, JCC has come up with several changes.

They include an armed presence during the majority of operating hours, hiring a security director and conducting a security readiness assessment of the center.

The center will hold staff and community training workshops and establish a crisis communications network that will be ready to alert everyone at the center of any emergencies.
