Keynote Presenters



As a longtime police officer, School Resource Officer and eventually Chief of Police for the Newtown Police Department in Connecticut, nothing could have prepared Chief Kehoe and his staff for the tragic day of December 14th, 2012. Chief Kehoe was at the helm when 20 year old Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and violently killed 20 children and 6 staff members at the school.  Prior to that, Lanza killed his mother at their home in Newtown and eventually killed himself following his rampage.

Chief Kehoe will speak about his agencies response and the aftermath left behind in the school, the small community, state and the entire nation.  Chief Kehoe will also speak on the need for mental health preparation in responding to such incidents.
