FREE CHURCH SECURITY TRAINING SEMINAR

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.

Today, more than ever, churches need to have a safety and security team in place. Most churches are what we call “soft targets.” A soft target is one where a violator isn’t likely to encounter any resistance. Churches need to make themselves a “hard target” or one that makes it harder to attack and discourages “would be” violators. Of course not all situations can be prevented, but with a security team in place the damage and harm can be minimized.

It’s not enough to have church members who are willing to volunteer for a security team. It’s not enough that they have a concealed carry permit. For a security team to be effective they need to be carefully selected and they need to be properly trained. For those on the team that would be armed; we will train them to law enforcement standards in proficiency with their firearm and that means yearly qualification on the range. Part of my job is to limit your liability and we do that with training. Of course not all members need to be armed. Eyes and ears are important as well! Team members that are good at observing and detecting potential threats before they become attacks are equally as important. There is also the matter of policy and procedures.

  • The seminar is 3 hours long and hosted at the Carolina Firearms Training & Gun Sales, Inc. store located in the Tramway area.
  • These events are free to attend with a 30 slot limit.
  • We host this seminar on the last Thursday of each month.
  • To register for this course please go to “Courses” which will take you to the calendar of courses to see when this seminar is available.
