House of Worship


Security for the House of Worship is a presentation designed to give leaders of houses of worship and/or their security personnel the tools they need to create a safe and secure environment for all of their staff and parishioners. The presentation is designed to identify and assess the vulnerability of the various targets in a house of worship. Then suggest ways to reduce the vulnerability of those targets. Included with the presentation is the option of having one of our trained crime prevention officers perform a security evaluation of the exterior of the house of worship and point out areas of vulnerability and provide feedback on corrective options for those vulnerable areas.
