On January 15th, 2022 an international terrorist entered the Congregation Beth Israel Synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, and took 4 people hostage, including the Rabbi, kicking off an 11-hour standoff with local, state, and federal authorities. The FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team eventually breached the building and fatally wounded the suspect. Colleyville PD’s Public Information Officer (PIO) will discuss the case and lessons learned about communications.
