An active shooter class was held at the home of TV20: Public Auditorium for City of Cleveland employee’s.

We here at TV20 also took part in the class to learn more and become further educated!

Detective Joe Billups was among the many there and spoke to the crowd more about situations where Clevelanders may find themselves face to face with harm and the necessary steps to take.
