At the Anoka County Board Meeting on September 26th, 2017 during the Chair’s remarks, the Anoka County Board of commissioners celebrated and recognized the Anoka Hennepin School district for winning a national award.
Recently, the Anoka Hennepin School District won top honors in a national competition for an internal training video they produced to train staff on what to do in the event of an emergency. The video was produced with the assistance of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office and our local Cable Channel, QCTV (Quad Cities Television).
The Anoka-Hennepin Chief Operations Officer, Chuck Holden, was present and gave the board an overview of the collaborative effort of the project. The video specifically addressed how to react during an “active shooter” type of scenario. The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office Deputies who worked with the school district on the project, Deputy Jon Mathisen and Deputy Cory Bowker, were also at the meeting.
“We are honored by this award that celebrates our collaborative effort to keep our children safe. We will continue to work with all of our partners to protect and serve the community in a manner that preserves the public trust,” said Sheriff James Stuart.
