Here are a few guidelines regarding basic church security:
BACK-UP SECURITY’S ROLE:
·Intervene at the target-area the moment of the confrontation to assist the primary security team member.
·Apply Counter-Measures by putting the assailant under submission as the circumstances demand, such as: Applying wrist or arm locking techniques, utilizing takedown maneuvers, or by applying a mechanical restraint device.
·Insure the situation is Under Control and that peace is being established.
THE BIG THREE: (during any altercation) -
·Separate your pastor from the threat.
·Evacuate the pastor to a secured area and disperse the crowd that’s in the immediate area.
·Contain the situation by utilizing:
a)Verbal de-escalation tactics (reasoning), and,
b)Physical means (takedown and restraining techniques) and/or mechanical restraints.
