ESS Global Corp offers professional “faith-based” Florida church security in Orlando, Tampa and throughout Florida, the US and globally.
We are saddened by recent violent events and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the deceased.
Over 420 people have died in incidents involving deadly force at churches and other faith organizations in America since 1999, as detailed by noted church security expert Carl Chinn and reported in a 2013 issue of SBC LIFE, the journal of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee.
If you’ve followed the news the past two years, you know that number has risen dramatically.
The SBC Life article recommended ways churches can protect themselves against violent intruders.
- Perform a professional security analysis for activities throughout the week and at services.
- Assess unmonitored entryways to the church on Sundays or during other activities including day care, Bible studies, and more where someone could enter and hide.
- Consider hiring a security firm to provide armed security during all church events.
Church Security in Orlando – Church Security Training
For pastors, priests, rabbis, religious leaders, teachers, and their staff members, security and safety should be on top of their minds. Churches, and other houses of worship face a unique set of security challenges and are all subject to crime and violence. Church Security and Safety should be a priority in all Churches and Houses of Worship. If there are no security plans and security improvements made, this leads to vulnerability, and when you least expect it, an event occurs.
ESS Global Corp Church Security Training
How effective is our faith based church security training? On August 3, 2015, ESS Global Corp received a letter from Brandon White, Executive Pastor at Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida.
“As a large church in the Tampa Bay community, the safety and security of the attending congregation is held in the highest regards, which should never be marginalized as a second thought. One of the greatest aspects of the training was the full assurance of complete understanding before introducing any new concepts, terminology, or practical application revealed the desire your team has to help others in achieving their goals. In addition, you have gone above and beyond by offering your services for future follow up sessions to ensure proper implementation, which is a genuine characteristic of both your integrity and ethical uprightness.”
By taking responsibility for the safety of your church with “faith based” security, you will have done the best thing possible to reduce risk.
