Outreach Community Church, in conjunction with Strategos International and the Box Elder Police Department, is hosting a 2-day church security seminar in December. This interactive, energetic, faith-based training is open to all, and lunch is provided each day. The Church Security Planning and Intruder Awareness training will equip your staff and key volunteers to create a personalized security plan that protects your congregation while maintaining a welcoming environment. You can choose from a 1- or 2-day option, but both days are recommended and the subjects interrelate.
Day 1 topics: Intruder response; Lockdown, Offering collection, protection, and transport; Nursery security; Medical response; Volunteer selection; Armed vs. unarmed security; Protecting the pastor; The role of ushers and greeters
Day 2 topics: Creating a culture of awareness; Lockdown; Recognizing suspicious behavior; Approaching suspicious or armed individuals; Verbal conflict management & de-escalation; The role of ushers, greeters and other frontline team members
In addition to houses of worship, the information and concepts presented are readily adaptable to a variety of facilities and events. This course received excellent feedback when offered in eastern South Dakota in 2016. It has also been attended and reviewed by the host(s).
