Bethel Baptist Church to host church security training

Church safety and security will be the focus of a full-day training at Bethel Baptist Church in Cherry Hill on Oct. 10.

Developed by current and former members of law enforcement, the “Shepherd’s Watch Safe and Secure Church Training” is intended for church security teams and church leaders wanting to develop and improve upon their safety and security plans.

“As incidents of violence in our churches continue to increase, people expect that their church leaders are taking steps to ensure their safety. Shepherd’s Watch is responding to that expectation by offering best practices in safety and security that are also compassionate and ministry-focused,” said Craig Cable, church security expert and co-developer of the training.

The training will cover such topics as: how to determine the church’s biggest potential liabilities and risks; hands-on learning through live scenarios and role-playing exercises; performing a risk assessment and identifying ways to mitigate risk and best practices for ongoing training opportunities for security team members.
