GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Law enforcement, emergency management and homeland security officials from around Michigan are meeting this week in Grand Rapids. The state's annual Homeland Security conference is going on this week at DeVos Place, a timely meeting given the recent Boston Marathon bombing. Michigan State Police Captain Chris Kelenske says the three-day conference gives public safety officials a chance to discuss how they can respond more effectively to emergencies. This year's conference also features a focus on school security in the wake of the tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
