In the spring of 2015, TBC's Executive Committee formed a Security Task Force and asked them to formulate and implement actions that would meet the dual goals of supporting TBC's warm and welcoming culture and creating an environment that is safe and comfortable for congregants. Aspects of this plan have now been implemented, and details are available here
