RNC gets security help from Central Kentucky

RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Republican National Convention is getting help with security from Central Kentucky.

Eastern Kentucky University’s Justice & Safety Center recently trained first responders from Ohio in preparation for the RNC in Cleveland.

As a member of the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium, a federally-sponsored grant program, EKU’s Justice & Safety Center trains law enforcements to come up with a security plan.

“The whole purpose is to point out deficiencies, vulnerabilities and then try to address those so they’re no longer a vulnerable,” said Bobby Day, one of the instructors of the course.
