    ACTIVE SHOOTER IN PLACES OF WORSHIP

    Houses of Worship can be extremely vulnerable to active shooter attacks because of their location, population, and open door mentality.  There are certain steps the leadership team can take to minimize the risk of being involved in an active shooter incident and this training will not only cover those steps, but will also cover best practices to survive these types of incidents.

    OTHER CRIMES IN PLACES OF WORSHIP

    In addition to active shooter incidents, there is a growing number of property crimes being committed against Houses of Worship, especially theft of funds, burglary, arson, and vandalism.  Even more disturbing, House of Worship members and staff are just as vulnerable to occurrences of personal and physical abuse as any other location.  Those intent on victimizing the vulnerable know that the forgiving culture and easy access environment of the House of Worship can inadvertently foster an opportune place to strike.  House of Worship leaders have the responsibility to conscientiously screen candidates, set boundaries, maintain an atmosphere of ethical behavior, and sustain a safe overall environment that is a hallmark of the House of Worship as a place of refuge and peace.

    TRAINING PRESENTATION

    Our presentation will cover topics to educate members, staff, leadership, and clergy on how to protect people and property; preventing accidents, injury, and neglect, safeguarding against loss from crime and theft of funds, protecting members and staff from abuse, liability, false claims, and lawsuits.  Protection of those entrusted to your care is a key element of a House of Worship.  Taking these additional, proactive steps will especially demonstrate your care and concern for the members, staff, and guests in your facility.

    TOPICS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE:

    • Active Shooter
    • Physical Security
    • Personal Security
    • Youth Safety and Programs
    • Critical Incidents
    • Financial Security
    • Electronic, Data Security
    • Organizational Protocol

    WHY ATTEND THIS CLASS

    This training course is designed to inform and educate those responsible for maintaining a safe environment for the people and property associated with churches, chapels, synagogues, temples, mosques, or any other place of worship we reverently call a House of Worship.  This course will assist in helping House of Worship leaders to learn how to prevent, avoid, and control various risks associated with the members, staff, guests, and buildings that make up your House of Worship.  Fortunately, most of the crime mentioned above are preventable!

    FBI statistics reveal that property crimes listed above are the primary ones that are costing Houses of Worship nearly 500 Million Dollars in lost funds and insurance costs, not to mention the loss of parishioners. 

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND

    Clergy - Management - Security Teams - Staff - Religion Members - Crime Prevention Practitioners - Community Policing Officers

    The Ohio Crime Prevention Association has partnered with The Academy to host a one-day training on Crisis Intervention and Prevention for Police Officers and Civic Volunteers. This training is offered to OCPA Members free of charge. For non-members the registration has been discounted to $30 per person. The discounted cost for this training is provided by a grant through the Cincinnati Bar Foundation.

    DESCRIPTION:

    Dealing with individuals with autism or intellectual disabilities in an informed manner can make a big difference in the outcome of a crisis situation. This training will help police officers and civic volunteers who work with police departments learn how to recognize the symptoms that people with autism may experience when overwhelmed or afraid. These symptoms might easily be misunderstood as appearing ‘under the influence’, or the individual may appear to be ignoring or threatening the police officer, or non-compliant to an officer’s orders. Recognizing the symptoms of autism and dealing with a person based on those observations can lead to a much better outcome.

    The training will also discuss the importance of body language, language used, eye contact, and proxemics when responding to people with disabilities who are in crisis situations. Participants will gain techniques for communicating with people who have autism, intellectual disability, and those who are ‘non-verbal’.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

    Crime Prevention Officers * School Resource Officers * Community Policing Officers * Law Enforcement Personnel * DARE Officers * University/Campus Law Enforcement * Leadership * Human Resource Personnel * Risk Reduction Managers * Security Teams * Safety Managers and Directors * Civic Volunteers

    TRAINING COSTS:

    FREE for OCPA Members, $30 for non-members.  Includes all training materials for the course.

    INSTRUCTORS:

    T. Dean Swartz works as a Behavior Specialist for the Clermont County Board of DD. He has over 34 years of experience in residential, school, and sheltered workshop settings. Dignity and respect are cornerstone concepts of his trainings.
