Concern Here After Texas Church Shooting

Due to last Sunday’s shooting in a Texas church that resulted in death for a large number of people, the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office reports that many citizens here have requested assistance with designing security plans for their churches. The Sheriff’s Office yesterday stated that in response to this local concern, it will hold a meeting with clergy from churches throughout the county at the Laurens County Courthouse at Hillcrest Square next Tuesday, November 14th. This meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office extended an invitation to all clergy members in our community. Anyone with questions about this offering should call Lieutenant Don Evans, Captain Charles Boyce or Chief Deputy Jarvis Reeder at (864) 984-4967.

That meeting with local pastors, again, is scheduled for 6:00 pm Tuesday, November 14th in the Courthouse on Hillcrest Square in Laurens.
