benefits of religious security

When you hire a security team for your place of worship, you hope they will never be needed. At Pikes Peak Security, we will help you create a proactive safety plan to prevent incidents before they occur. In the unfortunate situation where there is a security threat, our team’s priority is de-escalation and keeping everyone safe. However, we will take swift and decisive action when needed. Here are a few of the benefits of working with Pikes Peak Security for your religious security needs:

security assessment

When we join your security team, we will take the time to evaluate your current safety plan and suggest improvements. Small steps, such as keeping children’s classrooms locked during worship and communicating your safety plan with staff and volunteers, will go a long way toward protecting your facility.

drills and training for staff

Many religious institutions rely on volunteers to help run worship services, but they may not understand or be aware of your safety procedures. Pikes Peak Security can help conduct safety drills, such as evacuations and lockdowns, so that everyone who keeps your facility running is equipped to handle an emergency.

prevent disruptions

If someone becomes agitated or confrontational during a worship service, Pikes Peak Security can discreetly and safely remove them from the area. Our team will focus on de-escalating the situation so that your service can continue uninterrupted.

Monitor Facility for Safety

During services, our staff will regularly patrol your sanctuary, parking lots, children’s rooms, and other sensitive areas. This allows us to respond to suspicious activity as it occurs and gives you and your staff peace of mind. If a security threat does occur, we will provide an immediate response, which can save lives.

non-profit security grant through fema

Are you interested in improving security for your place of worship but worried that it’s not in your institutional budget? Every year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency offers grants to non-profit organizations for target hardening and emergency preparedness. Funds can be used for equipment, training, security operations, and more. Pikes Peak Security would love to partner with you in developing an effective emergency response for your organization.
