  • Church Security Resource

    In an earlier post, I noted that there was very little literature on church security, and that Philip Purpura had written a guide on security for houses of worship. I noted that it was out of print.

    However, that doesn't mean it's not available. It is posted by ASIS as a free 44-page PDF book at this link.

    Anyone who might be interested in serving this important niche market should download, save and print it out. Also, Purpura mentions some resources in this book that I will be checking to see if they are still current.

    I worked plain clothes, armed security for a large Lutheran church in downtown Minneapolis for about a year and a half. They kept their doors open to the public from 6am to 10 pm daily, so you would get a little rifraf from time to time, and a lot of break ins at night. Our company also did patrol stops there at night and also responded to alarms for them.
    Apparently a HUGE cop wannabe...

      Thank you for this link. It will be very useful for me, as I serve as an elder at my church.
