FRISCO, Texas, May 27, 2014 /Christian Newswire — The National Organization of Church Security & Safety Management (NOCSSM™) will present its Tenth Annual Church Security Conference to be held at New Life Church in Colorado Springs on August 8-9, 2014.
“Initial Responder™” Tactics (What to do until SWAT gets there?), Pastoral Protection, Close Quarters Combat, Active Shooters, Armed Security Teams, Control and restraint techniques, Childcare Security, Mission Trip Security — these are all buzzwords that every church is dealing with. Church leaders are asking, “What are the liabilities? What are other churches doing to address these issues?” and “What is legal in my state?”
“Each year we try to have new speakers and new subject matter to add to our attendee’s security skill set.” says Chuck Chadwick (President of NOCSSM),”This year is no different. It is hard for me to believe that we have been helping to protect our church families by providing ‘Real Solutions’ for the ‘Real World’ of church security for over ten years.”
Special sessions this year will include former United State Secret Service agent and Church Security Director Brian Gallagher who will be speaking on Pastoral Protection. New Life Church’s Security Director, Jeff Kowell’s demonstration of team security drills and exercises. Carl Chinn will also be presenting a special session on the newly announced “Gatekeeper Program™” being deployed in Colorado and other western states. Carl will also be speaking about the New Life Church shooting of 2007. Chuck Chadwick will be presenting on Armed “Initial Responder™” Tactics.
While not all churches have the degree of concern as a mega-church, every church wants to meet the unthinkable with a degree of preparedness.
The two day conference is the best training attendees can get and a great value to every church. We anticipate to sell out very quickly.
