Church Security Training

The greatest security achievement is the crime that wasn’t committed

In 2012, the US experienced 135 deadly force incidents on faith-based properties as compared to 5 on school properties. Workplaces are under assault from disgruntled employees, domestic disputes, and other acts of terror. The threat of violence in the church and workplace is a very real and present danger, yet the vast majority of organizations have no or insufficient security measures in place.

AGAPE Tactical provides your organization with a comprehensive and actionable plan built on our three-phased approach to church security: Deter, Detect and Deny. Our skilled operators are trained to identify a variety of security vulnerabilities and make recommendations to address problem areas. You prioritize those recommendations and we then train your staff, security team, and other volunteers according to your priorities and budget requirements.

FA Icon Active Shooter Training

Active Shooter Response Training - This 2-hour training program is taught at your office, school, church, or other facility. Participants will be able to recognize the sound of gunfire (blank rounds) inside their facility and will learn skills to deal with an active shooter threat.  The skills include: how and where to run, how and with what to fight, and how and where to hide.

This is an interactive program where the participants will actually fight the active shooter.  The aggressor will be wearing a Red Man protective suit which will allow for the most realistic training available.  The program includes a one hour presentation with question and answer period and an hour spent practicing the skills which have been discussed.

FA Icon Non-Aggressive Subject Control Training

This training will teach soft, empty-hand control techniques against both passively and actively resisting subjects. They do not require striking, kicking, taser, or OC spray. The techniques taught reduce the likelihood of injury to both the team member and the subject. While the techniques are effective, they are non-aggressive in appearance and benefit the church regarding public perception on use-of-force. They are easy to learn and perform regardless of physical strength or ability.

You will learn, and use, skills including the Spear technique, empty hand knife defense, gun retention, ground fighting and grounded gun retention.

Students will engage in force-on-force training with the use of simunitions weapons, air-soft weapons, or IR weapons to maximize stress. This provides some of the most realistic training available.
