IRVING, Texas—Newtown Conn. Police Chief Michael Kehoe will be the featured speaker at The Electronic Security Expo’s IceBreaker Luncheon, held Tuesday, June 18 at 12 p.m., according to a statement from the organization. The event is part of ESA’s Electronic Security Expo, scheduled for June 17-21, 2013 in Nashville, Tenn.

A first responder to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Kehoe was pivotal in helping his community cope with the unimaginable tragedy.

“I’m glad to participate in the Industry IceBreaker Luncheon at ESX this June,” Chief Kehoe said in the statement. “It’s important that we in the public and private safety sectors continue to find new ways to work together to help secure and protect our communities.”

During the luncheon, Kehoe plans to discuss how the public and private safety sectors can work together, along with how best to equip public safety officials to respond to disasters.

“We’re extremely proud to welcome Chief Kehoe to ESX’s Industry IceBreaker Luncheon,” ESX Chair George De Marco said in the statement. “I look forward to hearing his thoughts on how the public and private safety sectors can work together to protect our most precious assets: our families—our children.”

Kehoe has been the Newtown Conn. Police Chief since 2001. He is also a member of the Connecticut Coalition for Drug Endangered Children, and the board co-chair of the Newtown Prevention Council.
