Safety for Faith-Based Communities

The Police Department understands that faith-based communities strive to promote an open and welcoming atmosphere while ensuring a safe and secure place for fellowship. The Department has developed a safety and crime prevention program specifically designed to meet the unique needs of places of worship that includes:

  • Safety and crime prevention assessment of the facility and grounds
  • Training seminar for key staff that includes developing safety policy and procedures
  • Training class for members of the congregation that includes personal safety and response to active shooter incidents
