As crime continues to be an issue across the Magnolia State, the inaugural Mississippi Public Safety Summit has been announced for May 8-10.
The summit, which will be held at The Refuge in Flowood, will be hosted by Governor Tate Reeves, Attorney General Lynn Fitch, and Department of Public Safety Commissioner Sean Tindell. The goal of the event is for law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and first responders to work together to find solutions to the state’s crime.
“Communication amongst public safety leaders is a crucial component of ensuring safety to their communities,” Tindell said. “The Department of Public Safety is proud to announce this summit and bring public safety leaders from across the state together to discuss topics that will in turn help improve their communities and enhance their public safety in their counties and municipalities.”
Featured speakers at the Mississippi Public Safety Summit will include Operation Underground Railroad founder Tim Ballard, former command master chief of SEAL Team Six Dave Cooper, Delta State University Professor Dr. Kent Wessinger, and FBI special agent Bradley Hentschel.
