Active Shooter and Site Security

12 Steps to Better Security in Houses of Worship

Book and Free Coaching

Marc Siegel has been giving free coaching to houses of worship for developing comprehensive risk, security, and emergency management plans.  He writes:  “I have a book out on 7 December on “Preventing and Managing Violence in Organizations” and am working on a simple “12 Steps to Better Security in Houses of Worship” which I plan to give away for free.  What I am finding at some houses of worship is that they react to every spectacular incident but have not done an comprehensive plan to deal with day-to-day risks.  It also seems many organizations just think it is possible to buy some equipment and the security problem is resolved.”
