    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.

    TRAINING PRESENTATION

    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.

    TOPICS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE:

    • Active Shooter
    • Physical Security
    • Personal Security
    • Youth Safety and Programs
    • Critical Incidents
    • Financial Security
    • Electronic, Data Security
    • Organizational Protocol

    WHY ATTEND THIS CLASS

    The Ohio Crime Prevention Association will be offering a two-day (16 hour) training on Advanced Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).

    This CPTED two-day training will begin with a review of the CPTED concept to insure participants share a basic understanding of CPTED.  Then, we will begin the process of understanding how CPTED may work in concert with processes for identifying and evaluating potential built-environment structures/facilities at risk for damage or loss due to man-made or natural disaster.

    With a clearly unstable world, and oft-stated threats directed at our cities, it is necessary that every community have people who have an ability to assist in determining what facilities/structures might be at a greater risk, couple with an ability to determine the potential impact if such locations would be damaged or destroyed.

    We will consider Asset Value, Threats/Hazards, Vulnerability and Risk.  We will also attempt to clarify the difference between targets that are critical infrastructure vs targets that might be more symbolic.  Both carry common risks, as well as potentially very different consequences in the case of damage or complete loss.

    DAY ONE:

    The first training day will consist largely of classroom activity and training.  If time and circumstances permit, we will spend a small portion of our time reviewing lighting issues. 

    DAY TWO:

    The second training day will consist of groups conducting actual assessments of a facility, preparation of a brief PowerPoint presentation to demonstrate their findings/observations.  This will include a presentation to the class on their findings.  There will be no right or wrong approach.  This will be a learning opportunity and everyone will be encouraged to participate and to share their thoughts and observations. 

    CLASS NEEDS:

    Students should ideally bring a laptop computer (if possible), flashlight, digital camera and clothing to permit a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

    Crime Prevention Officers * School Resource Officers * Community Policing Officers * Law Enforcement Personnel * DARE Officers * University/Campus Law Enforcement * Leadership * Human Resource Personnel * Risk Reduction Managers * Security Teams * Safety Managers and Directors.

    TRAINING COSTS:

    $90 for OCPA Members, $120 for non-members.  Includes all training materials for the course.

    INSTRUCTORS:

    Instructors are known in their profession throughout Ohio with multiple years of expertise in law enforcement, crime prevention, and loss prevention.  All of the instructors for this course are Ohio Certified Crime Prevention Specialists, and are active in their profession.
