Church Security

In 2012, the United States experienced 115 shootings in churches and five shootings in schools. While each event is tragic, churches are 23 times more likely to have an incident involving a gun than schools. In addition to shootings, churches experience a variety of other crimes including, abductions, assaults, domestic disputes, embezzlements, and theft. The threat of violence in the church today is a very real and present danger. For this reason, AGAPE Tactical specializes in partnering with churches to plan for unforeseen danger. Currently, 75% of churches have no security measures in place.

Failure to plan is a plan for failure.

AGAPE’s church security training is customized to meet the needs of each individual organization. Services include the following:

· Conducting a needs analysis
· Evaluating the current system
· Designing a security plan
· Training team members in crisis response
· Training greeters and ushers in the importance of observation and tactical conversations
· Responding to disorderly parishioners
· Reacting to domestic disturbances inside the church
· Scenario based training
· Emergency medical training to include: basic first aid, pediatric and adult CPR, AED training, and emergency gunshot wound management

AGAPE Tactical offers church security seminars to help church leaders better understand the need for a solid security plan and provide information on implementing this plan.
