Montgomery County Police Presentation on 2010 Discovery Hostage Situation

Partner Paul S. Lewis attended a presentation by Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger on the Discovery Channel hostage situation which occurred in September of 2010.  Using actual audio tapes and surveillance video footage, Chief Manger showed the gathering how the combined efforts of the Montgomery County patrol officers and the MCPD Swat Team were able to eliminate a threat by a man who had wired an explosives “vest” to his body.  It was a particularly timely lecture given the tragic events at the Washington Navy Yard. However, it was reassuring to learn that our Police Department is well trained to deal with such potentially disastrous situations.
