Church Safety & Security

Creating a Safer Space for Your Faith-Based Organization

When it comes to your faith-based organization, nothing is more important than the safety and security of your employees, congregation, and other team members. However, as a religious employer, it can be difficult to know where to start – and how to best prepare your staff for potentially dangerous situations.

At Church HR Network, we specialize in helping faith-based organizations prepare for the unthinkable. We’re proud to act as your partner, and will help guide you through every step of the process.

Site Vulnerability Assessments

A site vulnerability assessment provides you with a suite of mitigation strategies to reduce risk and protect your building and your members from danger.

We’ll complete a thorough walk-through study of your facilities, grounds, and existing operational procedures. Together, we’ll examine your organization from the inside out to find and identify risks and vulnerabilities.

We’ll then come up with a comprehensive plan, based on your unique environment, to strengthen the security of your building. Through this process, your representatives will be trained to recognize both existing and future potential vulnerabilities.

Custom Safety & Security Manuals

We create a variety of custom safety and security manuals for faith-based organizations, including child protection manuals.
These manuals are a great way to obtain a higher level of coverage with liability insurance, and to put in place policies and procedures for the safety of children. These manuals can also include standard operating procedures like check-in/out procedures, reunification areas, and other protocols.

A few examples of the custom manuals we can help with include:

  • Handling a sex offender in church
  • Child pickup and dropoff procedures
  • Persons of interest policies
  • Child and youth protection manuals

In addition to creating a safer space, having the right safety and security procedures in place can also help you get a higher level of insurance coverage for your ministry – which is essential when it comes to protecting your faith-based organization.
