Church Security or Pastor Protection Considerations

 

- Risk Threat Vulnerability Assessment of the church and campus  

 

- Developing a written plan of options to present to the Pastors and Board that fits within the church’s culture.

 

- Developing a policy handbook with SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and the roles and responsibilities of static and mobile teams, ushers and greeters.

 

- Recruiting and vetting candidates for the security team and hiring a director to oversee campus security, events, and travel 

 

- Training of team members in the established SOPs and creating a budget for the security team - training, radios, CCTV, medical equipment, etc… 

 

- Protective intelligence program specific to the church’s liabilities 

 

- Integrating the security team within the church’s administrative staff

 

- Reaching out to local L.E. & EMS for support, direction. 

 

- Establishing a team of volunteers to augment regular security staff for large events and travel 

 

- Monthly training to maintain standards (Budget needed for training, ammo, and range fees)

 

- Clear understanding of Use of Force Policy 

 

- Realistic goals regarding timelines of training and maintaining standards

 

- Education of church staff to fully understand the goals, rolls, and responsibilities of the security staff which should be:  

  1. Ensure safety and security of church personnel and assets, members and guests 

  2. Facilitate administrative productivity 

  3. Protect the public image and reputation of the church.
