On Wednesday, April 13th, I’ll be teaching a seminar on safety and security for places of worship from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., at the West Des Moines, Iowa, Police Department. It’s for church leaders and volunteers, police officers and volunteers, police chaplains, and anyone who is a resource for safety and security for places of worship–all faiths, denominations and church settings. The fee is $75 and a box lunch is provided. You’ll receive a lot of e-files from which you can copy and paste–and the training has substance and quality content.
As with all of my training about safety and security for places of worship, this will have a whole-church focus, rather than being focused primarily on dealing with violence and disruption—as important as that is to be concerned about. This training is useful for anyone who wants to gain information and inspiration about the Big Picture of safety and security for all of the People, Places, Property, Processes and Programs of a place of worship.
In the seminar I recently taught in Southlake, Texas, one of the participants said, “I never thought I’d say I want training to last longer, but I could have stayed on for several more hours.” Another one said, “This was the most useful training on this topic that I’ve ever attended. I have a list of over twenty things to take care of right away.” (Those are the reactions I love to hear!)
All you have to do to register is to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me and let me know. Checks or cash are payable at the door or by invoice to a church or organization for a check sent in the mail.
I hope those of you in the area can attend and bring several people with you. See you in West Des Moines!
