The sessions scheduled for today, Feb. 15, have been canceled. We are working hard to reschedule and will let you know when the new sessions will occur.

PANEL DISCUSSION:  POLICING SOVEREIGN CITIZENS
Feb. 15, 6 p.m.
Retired Pa. State Police Sergeant Robert Bemis will take part in a panel discussion concerning policing sovereign citizens on today, Feb. 15, at 6 p.m. in Alumni Auditorium, McFarland Student Union. This discussion will explore the origins of the movement, recognition of belief indicators, and tactics to reduce ideologically motivated violence of sovereign citizens. The event is free and open to the public.  Sovereign citizens believe that the government, its representatives, and its laws and policies are illegitimate and hold a strong anti-government ideology. This causes sovereign citizens to regularly find themselves in conflict with the law.  Bemis is a former marine who once helped protect President Ronald Reagan in Washington D.C. He has more than 20 years of experience and knowledge working in the criminal justice field and will bring insight on how future criminal justice career holders can handle and reduce violence when dealing with a sovereign citizen. This event is co-sponsored by ACE the Association for Campus events and the Criminal Justice Department. For more information on the event please contact either Colin Bolger at bolger@kutztown.edu, or Patritsa Chatzitziva at chatzits@kutztown.edu.
