This past week, East Lansing experienced two “secure in place” orders from the local police, including one on Monday involving the East Lansing Public Schools and another on Tuesday at MSU. What trips these orders? What do “secure in place” and “lockdown” orders really mean?
To find out, I talked to Lieutenant Steve Gonzalez of the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD).
What does it mean when ELPD or MSU Police recommends people “secure in place”?
