On Tuesday, Chief Walker was in attendance in DSU where the WKU Center for Citizenship & Social Justice in partnership with the Diversity & Equity Committee, hosted a Deliberative Dialogue on Safety & Justice, utilizing the WKU Chief Diversity Officer's T.R.U.T.H. Talk Series (True Racial Understanding Through Honest Talks), which was designed to keep the campus community talking about issues of race, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Many of us can remember when the only drills we would practice in schools were tornado and earthquake drills. Prior to these incidents unfolding, there were typically prior notifications, warnings, or even sirens that sounded. Now...now we must prepare for something completely different. Since active shooter situations can develop so quickly and provide little or no warning, it is often difficult to prepare for them, but developing a plan for your department, office, or classroom and then practicing it, can make a difference in saving lives until law enforcement arrives. We encourage everyone to use the Run. Hide.Fight. message as a guide to what you choose to do in the moment such an event occurs. Before we can make a difference, we have to make a decision. We must be prepared both mentally and physically. Let's not put off until tomorrow, what we can begin doing today. Stay safe everyone!

Chief Cupid wishes everyone out there a Happy Valentine's Day!!!
