Being able to recognize a threat is as important as responding to that threat. Only with proper and frequent training can a security team be effective.
A good security team needs to plan and prepare to deal with any potential threat. Disruptive behavior must be dealt with quickly and with as little disruption of the service as possible.
Evacuation procedures along with who will implement them needs to be established.
A security team must train and practice in advance for threats.
Parking lot security is very important. The parking lot security person ideally would be the first to observe any potential threats entering the church grounds (possession of weapons, unruly demonstrators, irrational behavior).
Other responsibilities for a security team can include protection and monitoring of any children and youth areas, maintenance of First Aid kits and emergency equipment, as well as providing security for special events.
The team leader or assigned defensive tactics trainer will also need to teach appropriate defensive/reactive tactics and techniques to team members.
Preplanning for emergencies, closing gaps in your security.
By training and developing an alert and suspicious mindset, you can recognize and be prepared to deal with intrusions and emergencies.
Utilizing proper strategies to allow security personnel and equipment to intervene and insulate your congregation from disruptions (violent or otherwise).
By using the above, you may be able to disrupt or interrupt an attack on your church.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]If you do not currently have a security plan please contact us today for a no-obligation discussion about your specific security needs.[/vc_column_text]
