I wanted to take a moment and ask my readers for help in spreading the message of church safety and security. This is a relatively new topic for churches across America. Safety and security is one of the main topics that churches tend to overlook. It is unfortunate that this needs to be an area of concern; however, the reality is that churches all over America are experiencing thefts, fires, assaults, break-ins, kidnapping, sexual predators, shootings, stabbings, and alike.
I started this blog due to a passion for the topic of Church Safety and Security. I have worked in the fields of Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue, and Medical Emergency Services almost my entire life. These positions have included jobs with private corporations, as well as, local, state, and federal governments. I am currently employed by one of the leading federal law enforcement agencies in Washington, DC. I always strive to present the most accurate information in a way that will be helpful to you and your congregations.
It the next several months my plan is to expand and improve this blog into a resource based website to continue to include daily blog post like you currently see. I need the help of my readers to get this message out to churches across America. If you have a blog or if your church has a website please post something about what is going on at www.securityatchurch.com. We would love for you to post a link to our site to help generate traffic and interest to this topic. If you would like a banner or logo for your site just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also want to draw your attention to the link below. In July “Security at Church” will be co-sponsoring the first national Vigilance Church Security Conference. Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY is hosting this event. Leading speakers from across the country will be speaking on the topic of church security.
