The Ohio Crime Prevention Association will be offering a three-day Introduction to Crime Prevention Course for sworn and non-sworn professionals interested in beginning crime initiatives or those interested in refreshing their knowledge.
Effective Crime Prevention has been seen as a key strategy in reducing crime and violence in our communities. This comprehensive course is designed to address local community needs ranging from physical security to violence prevention.
This course is tailored to the needs of today's crime prevention and community policing practitioners, and places great emphasis on programmatic initiatives giving the practitioners the knowledge, tools, and resources to do their jobs successfully.
Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition and the appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it. Crime Prevention means working in partnership, rather than isolation, and working with concerned citizens to address ways to prevent crime and drug abuse. It means communities and individual citizens learning how to protect themselves and to work together to keep their neighborhoods crime and drug free. It means law enforcement working with communities, businesses, and service organizations to develop action plans based on information about crime and other problems.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE:

ACTIVE SHOOTER IN PLACES OF WORSHIP
Houses of Worship can be extremely vulnerable to active shooter attacks because of their location, population, and open door mentality. There are certain steps the leadership team can take to minimize the risk of being involved in an active shooter incident and this training will not only cover those steps, but will also cover best practices to survive these types of incidents.
OTHER CRIMES IN PLACES OF WORSHIP
In addition to active shooter incidents, there is a growing number of property crimes being committed against Houses of Worship, especially theft of funds, burglary, arson, and vandalism. Even more disturbing, House of Worship members and staff are just as vulnerable to occurrences of personal and physical abuse as any other location. Those intent on victimizing the vulnerable know that the forgiving culture and easy access environment of the House of Worship can inadvertently foster an opportune place to strike. House of Worship leaders have the responsibility to conscientiously screen candidates, set boundaries, maintain an atmosphere of ethical behavior, and sustain a safe overall environment that is a hallmark of the House of Worship as a place of refuge and peace.
Our presentation will cover topics to educate members, staff, leadership, and clergy on how to protect people and property; preventing accidents, injury, and neglect, safeguarding against loss from crime and theft of funds, protecting members and staff from abuse, liability, false claims, and lawsuits. Protection of those entrusted to your care is a key element of a House of Worship. Taking these additional, proactive steps will especially demonstrate your care and concern for the members, staff, and guests in your facility.

WHY ATTEND THIS CLASS
This training course is designed to inform and educate those responsible for maintaining a safe environment for the people and property associated with churches, chapels, synagogues, temples, mosques, or any other place of worship we reverently call a House of Worship. This course will assist in helping House of Worship leaders to learn how to prevent, avoid, and control various risks associated with the members, staff, guests, and buildings that make up your House of Worship. Fortunately, most of the crime mentioned above are preventable!
