Church Security in Mississippi Strikes Balance

Note: An inter-city church faces different challenges with physical security. This security upgrade at a church in Mississippi is a great example of simple changes that can make a big difference.


To gain entrance to the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Tupelo, visitors must approach the door beside the chapel.

There they will find a brushed steel call box, mounted with a speaker and a video, that may look out of place against the church’s castle-like architecture. Through the call box, the visitor is able to call the church office to disengage the electronic lock and allow them inside.
