The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security partnered with the
Berks County Intermediate Unit to host:
On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, law enforcement responded to an incident where a Midland City school bus driver was shot and killed. A 5-year-old boy, aboard the bus at the time, was kidnapped and held in an underground bunker for a week by his abductor.
Knowing the child was in imminent danger the FBI stormed the bunker, freeing the boy and leaving the abductor dead. The FBI and Dale County Sheriff’s Office were the keynote speakers to discuss this tragic event.
Seminar attendees heard experts discuss school safety issues, past incidents, strategies for parental reunification, and mitigation strategies.
