MEDINA – The Medina Central School District and the Medina Police Department last week hosted Retired FBI Agent David Budz on the school campus for a presentation to school and community personnel on prevention and response to violent situations.

Agent Budz was a part of the debriefing team after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., when 17 were killed by a teen gunman on Feb. 14, 2018.

He shared information to help other schools and agencies learn from mistakes that were made and capture effective efforts that were in place.

School administrators, Board of Education members and personnel were in attendance from Medina school district, as well as Lyndonville and Albion schools. Representatives were also in attendance from Orleans/Niagara BOCES, Orleans Community Health, Medina Police Department and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department.
