Security professionals to specfically address church needs

The American Society for Industrial Security International (ASIS) is creating a council to address security concerns and improvements for churches and other faiths’ houses of worship. “The Faith-Based Organization Council is a result of incidents of violence and other crimes against houses of worship and faith-based organizations,” said Jeffrey Hawkins, executive director of the Christian Security Network, and head of the FBO Council. “We want to have all faiths represented so we can effectively develop comprehensive standards and guidelines, and tackle issues that all religions are facing now and in the future.” ASIS International is the umbrella organization for more than 30 councils made up of volunteer security, law enforcement and military personnel from banking, education, pharmaceutical, retail, transportation, utilities and other fields. The Faith-Based Organization Council is ASIS International’s first body dedicated to security issues among faith-based organizations. Included in the discussion is the Christian Security Network, which works with churches, ministries, missionaries and Christian schools to enhance security, safety and emergency planning. Hawkins will outline several strategies in “Increasing Risks for Faith-Based Organizations,” a presentation at ASIS International’s Annual Conference in Anaheim, Calif., Sept. 21-24.
