Times have changed. That means taking responsibility and ensuring that congregations are protected with the resources that you have. We would like to think that bad things don’t happen in church but they do and it’s on the rise! It’s not necessarily an active shooter situation but a multitude of other things that may have to be addressed. Examples would be weather related incidents, medical emergencies, thefts, vandalism, domestic violence issues and subjects coming into the sanctuary in an attempt to disrupt the services.

For this reason we have implemented “BOOT CAMP” for churches wanting to start a security team. This is 2 days of intensive training which consists of classroom and time on the firing range. The training will be conducted on days that work for your church. WE ALSO SET DATES TO HOLD THIS SAME TRAINING AS WELL. PLEASE CHECK THE TRAINING CALENDAR. The program coordinator and chief instructor is Kevin Dodson. Kevin is a 16 year veteran of law enforcement and is still certified as a Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor and NRA Pistol Instructor. Please go to our “About Us” page for Kevin’s Bio. Kevin has taught almost 17,000 students in concealed carry, pistol, carbine rifle, and tactical shotgun. Kevin also has a Youtube channel which is KDOD357. PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE. PLEASE CALL OUR STORE TO TALK ABOUT DAYS/SCHEDULE THAT WILL WORK FOR YOUR TEAM.
THE COURSE WILL RUN FROM 8:00AM TO APPROXIMATELY 5:00PM ALL 2 DAYS. EACH STUDENT WILL BE ISSUED A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION AT THE END OF THE COURSE. CALL TO SCHEDULE A COURSE!
