Los Angeles, CA, May 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- An executive protection and private security guard firm local to Southern California has announced its newest nationwide church security training division. Since church violence is on the rise like never seen before, churches are starting Church Security and Safety Teams. “It is a sad state of affairs when Churches today have to even think about “security” at their places of worship. Churches used to be thought of safe, sacred places that you could go to and your safety was all but guaranteed. Unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore” states President and CEO Grant Linhart of Gideon Protective Services, Inc. a Southern California based Executive Protection and Private Security Guard Firm.
Speaking further on church security training, Linhart states, “Violence that has steadily increased over the years doesn’t show any signs of slowing down as places of worship are seen as easy and “soft” targets. Due to the fact society as we know it is in a state of decay, our churches and synagogues having become prey for the depraved and delusional, our churches must be defended and safeguarded.”
As reported by the Christian Security Network, risks are only going up for the faith-based community and are finally being reported and tracked. The U.S. State Department now classifies faith-based organizations as one of the top five “at risk” groups in the world today. The U.S. has seen tragic incidents of violence against Christian organizations and other incidents occurring on a frequent basis.
Some of the benefits of implementing a church security and safety team is reduced liability insurance rates and premiums, church specific SOP/ policy manual, initial and reoccurring training for security team staff, installation of a new or enhancing an existing security surveillance system, mitigation of emergency procedures, and control and monitoring of the children’s section of the church to name a few.
