Online program alert – Aug. 15!

Ok, BCW members, friends, and beyond, mark your calendars for 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 15! We are hosting our first-ever online event, with a familiar guest for many of you – retired FBI agent Harry Trombitas!

Harry served in the FBI from 1983 until his retirement in 2012. He worked in Omaha, Nebraska, St. Louis, and New York before coming to Columbus in December 1991, and he served as spokesman for the Columbus office from 2003 until his retirement. Before that, he worked as a police officer and detective at Northwestern University and director of public safety at Creighton University. He has a bachelor’s in criminal justice from Ohio State and a master’s in counseling and psychology from Creighton, and is a lecturer in sociology at Ohio State. He is also the system vice president of security operations at OhioHealth and director of the Police Executive Leadership College for the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police.

Harry is ready to share stories of some of the most shocking cases he’s handled, along with insight on the relationship between the FBI and other local, state, and federal agencies.

While the program is free and online, registration in advance is REQUIRED for this event! Stay tuned to this space or our Facebook and Twitter feeds for registration details.

We hope to (virtually) see you there, and in the meantime, keep writing!
