    Our County has continued to be engaged in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) activities which is a surveillance program that targets Muslims. Specifically, we have trained delegates from over 55 international countries on the program through the Strong Cities Network. This includes a training in April.

    Will we be severing ties with Strong Cities? We are still listed on their site as a partner.

    Four high schools in Montgomery County offer classes/programs to teach students how to use rifles. This is the program that the gunman at Parkland learned to shoot guns. While this is an MCPS issue, the rifle ranges use lead-based bullets and does not do the required OSHA testing and protocols for lead exposure. There have been schools in Northern Virginia that have had lead exposure issues from the rifle ranges.

    Does the county’s Department of Public Health monitor these ranges? If not, will they do so?
