We like to think of our places of worship as being safe and free of criminal activity. Generally speaking, they are but we still see plenty of both non-violent and violent crimes on religious properties. In fact, violent crime has been on the rise on faith-based properties and events in recent years.
Law enforcement plays a huge role in dealing with these events, however, those present at the time are the ones that are forced to respond first. Because of this, it is important to be both proactive in normal operations and have training for when events do occur.
In Louisiana, places of worship are required to meet certain requirements to allow security team members to carry concealed firearms. Our 8+ hour course meets the required training component for those wishing to carry concealed handguns in Louisiana, but this course is also very beneficial for other team members or staff in Louisiana and other states.
Please contact us if you or your church is interested in hosting the one or two day format of this course.
