On Monday, local leaders are looking at ways to improve church security in case of an active shooter situation.

Baltimore County delegate, Ric Metzgar, is hosting a security conference at the Eastern Assembly of God in Dundalk at 7:00 p.m. Maryland State Police, Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office, and the Dignitary Security are all taking part.

The meeting was prompted by the deadly Texas church shooting.
