Remember the horrific Aurora shooting?
Get the inside story, and lessons learned, from Chief Ziman  

Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman speaks at a press conference on February 15, 2019.

Five people were killed and six Aurora Police Department officers were injured on Friday, February 15, 2019, when a disgruntled employee opened fire at other employees inside the Henry Pratt manufacturing company in Aurora, Illinois. Police arrived within minutes and exchanged gunfire, and then it took about 90 minutes to find the suspect in the expansive building before he was fatally shot. Numerous agencies poured into Aurora to help. Aurora Chief Kristen Ziman shares the credit for what she did to lead her department on that day and the days that followed, but there has been universal acclaim for her and her department. She and other first responders were honored by the Illinois House of Representatives on March 13 “for the incredible resilience they showed during the tragic events that took place” on February 15. 

Now Chief Ziman is prepared to give a presentation about what happened, how they responded, and how they evaluated their response. There will be time for questions as well. Her Illinois colleagues are grateful that she has agreed to do this at two Illinois locations:
