A comprehensive training on best practices to promote safety and security for places of worship and faithbased organizations. For faith leaders, clergy, lay ministers, staff from churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and meeting houses; law enforcement personnel; and government leaders.
Safety and security planning is increasingly important for places of worship and faith-based organizations. From acts of violence and vandalism to disruption of services, there are a wide range of security threats to houses of worship across the country. Law enforcement sources identify places of worship and faith communities as especially vulnerable targets, but there are ways to strengthen their protection.
During this one-day training, the instructor will review cases of violence in places of worship, talk through ways to prevent incidents and respond to an active shooter event and its aftermath, including effectively working with the media.
In addition, the instructor will guide participants in how to undertake comprehensive safety and security risk assessments and develop policies to effectively address not only acts of targeted violence, but also other areas of
vulnerability including sexual misconduct, financial exploitation and other crisis situations.
