MINISTRY OF DEFENSE
3 DAY CHURCH SECURITY SPECIALIST
In today’s world, we are plagued with more violence against the church than ever before. In the last 5 years alone, we have seen numerous attacks made against churches throughout the United States. However, on a larger scale, between January 1, 1999 to February 15, 2015 there have been over 971 (DFI) Deadly Force Incidents at churches throughout the country.
We recognize this trend in violence against the church and remain dedicated to ensuring that churches nationwide are provided with the tools and proper training to protect itself from the needless violence seen today that is being targeted towards the church. The bottom-line here is that times have changed, and today’s churches must take precautions against present day dangers and attacks made against the church.
