Safer By Design
Safer By Design is our site vulnerability and attack prevention program for churches. This program caters to armed church security staff, church attendees, and the church location itself. There are no formal fees to participate in any of the Safer By Design programs (informational flyers below). However, we do ask for consideration of a "Love Offering" to help offset some of the costs for materials, travel and general program operations. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Attack Prevention By Environmental Design
We conduct detailed site surveys and
vulnerability assessments for churches interested in reducing
opportunities for crime and/or mitigating risk for attack at their site.
These in-depth reports include stakeholder interviews,
a physical survey, an environmental assessment, detailed photographs,
a geographic crime analysis and specific recommendations for the location.
The assessment will also include recommendations on
improving access and response time for emergency personnel
in preparation for a critical incident at your location. Seconds matter...
The survey focuses on concepts of environmental design to help make
your location a harder target without a heavy emphasis on "target hardening".
"Target hardening" tends to institutionalize sites and deter potential attendees.
