Here is a good resource: Safe At Church

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here are some of the notes I took from a conference which I highly recommend everyone have in their community !

Things that can happen at a church: Shootings, Kidnappings. Sexual Molesters, rapes, murders, suicide, stabbings, robberies, medical emergencies, weather related disasters, accidents, and more…

Sex Crimes in Church are thru the roof, statistically they occur 30 PERCENT of the time from Staff and 50% from volunteers, 2369 kids are molested daily in America.

We have not been taught Biblically to “Believe the best in people” we know from scripture that man is deceitful and wicked. Hosea 4:7, Acts 7:42, Rom 1:28….

Biggest obstacle to protecting the flock is MENTAL. Not knowing the facts and working on assumptions.

75 million believers HAVE BEEN MURDERED For the cause if Christ since ST Stephen was killed in Acts 7

45 million killed in the 1900s… do we think we will escape harm?
230 people have been killed ON CHURCH PROPERTY SINCE MARCH 1999
136 dead bodies have been found OUTSIDE churches since 1999.

IMPORTANT: WATCHING And LISTENING!!!!

EYES AND EARS TEAMS:

1- Select Leader
2- Not the Pastor
3- Do not advertise, hand pick those you want on your team
4- Initiate an interview process- get a resume and know their background…
5- Should not select new Christians or all they will know of church is this. Pick women as well- they can be very intuitive.
6- Do background checks
7- Servant’s Heart – need to accept an assignment and do it cheerfully
8- Physically Fit
9- Not a Police- Wanna-Be

Safety teams need to arrive early at every event and check the perimeter. They have found dead bodies have been dumped at churches and this is something NO CHILD should ever find- it could scar them for life.

• Form a Security Policy
• Practice..practice..practice

Hire Off Duty Police Officers to just stand in the lobby. Much violence is diverted when people see an officer is on campus.
• Protect the Sunday School Rooms/ Kids, even if you have a desk there with an elderly man who won’t let anyone pass w/o a reason.
• Place people strategically by all kids rooms…no one is allowed to walk near the children without an escort. Kindly tell new people this is your policy and you will be happy to escort them if needed.
• It comes down to the little things churches are not doing.
• When you arrive – come early before the rest of the congregation. Check all Doors from the outside- if any are unlocked- you know the building must be searched before anyone can answer. Homeless people have been known to spend the night in churches…bodies can be dumped on the property, etc….
• Look for anything left outside the building- now we face terrorism and explosive backpacks, pipe bombs are possible.
• Keep building locked during the week, especially if women are left there alone.
• During the week, Do not go into the church with people you do not know
• Have code words for the Safety Team and also for the staff in case you are having trouble with anyone and need help.
• Cameras, intercom systems, panic alarms, any sound that may scare off an intruder or someone who would do harm…
• Program 911 into the phone, so all someone has to do is hit “line 1” to call police.
• Do not keep large amounts of cash
• When answering the phone, never tell someone “ I am here alone”
• Maintain adequate lighting
• Staff during the week should not park far from the door
• Know self-defense – but- better to always have pepper spray and even a few handcuffs available!
• Have a Safety Team in Place at any events that have kids, or have meetings with substance abuse groups, sex addicts groups etc….

ID Those who propose a risk:
1 – Mentally unstable
2 – People who may be off their meds ( Bi-Polar)
3 – The Angry
4 – Domestic Violence problems
5 – Problems between members
6 – Is the person dressed according to the weather…does he have a trench coat in 90 degree weather? Could be a problem.

Other issues to address;
Lovingly confront all known sex offenders and tell them you are glad they came, but do they have a plan for recovery. Help them implement that plan by not getting access to children AT ALL!

You can tell ANYONE to leave, anyone who disrupts the service can legally be ordered to leave, call 911. Especially if they are using “Fighting Words.”

Pay attention during the invitation- protect the Pastor at all times and protect the Front- stay visible but allow people to get ministered to. Some pastors have been assaulted during the “Prayer Call” – so stay vigilant.

Watch people’s hands police always watch where a person is placing their hands – if they are tucked into a pocket- the person could have a weapon.

Monitor the parking lot- MANY incidents happen in the parking lot before or after a service…fights, domestic violence, pipe bombs, etc…stay until everyone is gone. It is also the first line of defense- if a person is coming there to do harm- they will have to come thru the lot.

Call 911 at anytime you feel there COULD be a problem- immediately!

Monitor the Foyer…. Stations people at every door.

Look at a person’s physical appearance, facial expressions, what they are wearing. DO they look you in the eye, are they sweating or shaking?

Approach anyone suspicious. A Soft answer turns away wrath. If someone looks despondent, ask them how they are, and say, I am also having a bad day, can we come over here and talk? Try to get them away from the general public and call for additional help using your code word.

Remember- some come to hurt but MANY are HURT – we do not want to scare people off – just be wise.

Inside the sanctuary-sit strategically so you can see entrances, sit in the back, monitor stations…have several eyes inside the sanctuary.

WATCH…WATCH…WATCH…
Report Terroristic Threats of any kind!
NEVER touch people unless you have to.
USE WHATEVER FORCE IS NECESSARY to RESTRAIN them if NEEDED!
Do not allow skits that involve weapons….
To disarm someone- DISRUPT THE RHYTHM….you may get shot…but do what you have to if there is a shooter. Throw chairs, books, coffee, tackle and get the gun away….they are not usually expecting a fight!

Equipment:
Radios- Good ones UHF to be able to use inside buildings.
Golf Carts to be able to patrol the campus.
Pepper Spray
Hand Cuffs
Cameras
AED/First Aid

Another one from Tennessee

Said he had a “Problem with Christianity”

RICHMOND, Calif. — Richmond police Thursday arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with a brazen shooting at a Richmond Church during a Feb 2010 Sunday morning service.

March 2009, Illinois: A gunman walked down the aisle of a church during a Sunday service and killed the pastor, then stabbed himself and slashed two other people as parishioners wrestled him to the ground, authorities said.
“Some thought it was some type of skit”

Experts say churches should have security plans in place, but often don’t. First Baptist Church in Maryville, Ill., where the Rev. Fred Winters was fatally shot Sunday, was working on a security plan but had not yet implemented it.

A clarion call to ‘Stop the hate filled “Rhetoric”‘ but those who live in glass houses, should not throw stones !

In wake of the recent shootings in Arizona- the left is blaming “right-wing” for the Rhetoric which they claim led to the violence.

The Radically Left-Wing Daily Kos is accusing Sarah Palin of being responsible for the climate that led to the attempted murder of Rep. Giffords in Arizona. The reason: Palin’s use of the symbol “Target” .

What about their “Hate”? The Daily Kos has now removed this post:

But…what the media will NOT report is how Left-Wing Daily Kos placed a TARGET on Rep. Giffords and others in June of 2008:

And the Daily Kos is a website often used by left-wing politicians like: Barack Obama

Also in 2008, this is what Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Then in November of 2010- Obama said Latino’s should “Punish their enemies”

Pelosi had something to say when the political debate heated up during the Tea Party protests:


H/T- Right Perspective

In 2009 ,at the height of public resentment at bonuses being paid to Wall Street investment bankers, Obama said on March 30, 2009 that “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry.”

“I don’t want to quell anger. People are right to be angry. I’m angry. What I want us to do is channel our anger in a constructive way.”

Obama got very defensive when questioned about his inaction on the BP oil spill during an interview for American television on June 7, 2010 and said the following:

At a campaign stop on September 18, 2008, Obama advocated that his supporters “argue with [people], get in their faces”:

John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate Conservative Republican President Ronald Reagan and was fixed on Actress Jodi Foster- should we now eliminate all Jodi Foster Movies?

Overpopulation and Darwinian eugenics motivated Discovery gunman who called human babies “Parasites”

And do not forget the other left-wing groups like:

The extremist Earth Liberation Front, or ELF, has claimed responsibility for a rash of fires in California, including a $50-million development in San Diego.

“The organization has never harmed a single person,” said former ELF spokesman Craig Rosebraugh….

Equally stealthy animal radicals also are turning up the heat with an escalating rampage of destruction. In all, these extremists claim more than $100 million of destruction across the country.

Animal rights activists bombed a Bay Area genetics lab and released 10,000 mink in Washington.

and of course, the infamous: UNABOMBER

Perhaps Franklin Graham , the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, put it best when he made this statement regarding the shootings and “political rhetoric”:

This weekend our nation experienced a horrible attack by a deranged man in Arizona. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in their time of need and suffering.

As the American people grapple for answers to the question of how something as senseless as this shooting could happen, we need to be measured and cautious before we place blame.

Hasty accusations have already been made before much information is known and an investigation has occurred. I believe this is counterproductive and could in itself incite hatred. This is not a time for political opportunism.

Just because we disagree with someone from another political party does not mean we wish them harm. Furthermore, if something horrific happens to a person, it does not mean those who hold differing views are responsible for the actions of a disturbed individual.

What frightens me is that our country has accepted murder, violence and rape as entertainment that we see portrayed every day on TV, movies and video games. I agree with Sheriff Clarence Dupnik when he alluded to the fact that this country needs some serious soul searching. If we as a nation are not careful, we could see the destruction of the foundation upon which this nation was built.

Clearly our politicians and pundits on the left and right must also be careful. Their leadership and rhetoric must set an example for decency and civility.

My prayer is that God will put His loving arms around the families and victims in their time of loss and great suffering, and that they would sense His presence and comfort in their lives.
