What is your church doing for special events? Many churches plan for traffic control during their Sunday service; however, forget about other events throughout the week. Does your church have a traffic control team or parking crew? Do you work with the local police department to help organize traffic flow for large events?
Many states will allow you to hire off duty police officers or crossing guards to assist with special events. If your event is at night this may be even more important due to the reduced levels of light and visibility. The extra cost occurred is well worth both the legal and financial liability.
