Security Expert Says Churches can be Susceptible to Crime

From: 9 WSOCTV News

Every weekend, thousands of people gather at houses of worship across the Charlotte area. They are places many go to find peace. But security experts say that doesn't mean criminals leave churches and temples alone.

"They view churches and other ministries as an easy target," said Carl Chinn, a church security expert and author.

Chinn said that as security at places like schools, malls and airports increases, criminals will look for easy access somewhere else, and that a house of worship by nature welcomes people in.

"It's a sacred place, but it needs to be a safe place," said Reverend Jim Martin, the church business administrator at Providence Baptist Church.
