Free training for church ministers; "Keeping Our Houses of Worship Safe" .

Please see the attached flier - for our Free training for church ministers; "Keeping Our Houses of Worship Safe" .

While houses of worship are still a safe place to be, relative to everyplace else, there is still cause for concern.

One expert summed it up in a CNN interview by saying, “In some ways … houses of worship are simply the most "convenient venue" for attackers who harbor grudges against former lovers, spouses or friends. Many sanctuaries have regular schedules, lack robust security and proudly bear open-door policies. They are designed to attract the least and the lost, and to welcome them into a loving community, even if that sometimes has terrible consequences.”

The question is how can we keep our churches, synagogues, and mosques safe places to worship without alarming our congregations, and without making them uninviting places to worship?

We are privileged to have the Director of the Eureka Rescue Mission, Bryan Hall, as one of the keynote speakers.? And, we anticipate having law enforcement officers from local agencies, as well as experts from the Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to present and to participate in the round-table discussions. 

The actual location of this event (in Humboldt County) will be sent at a later date, following individual registration confirmation.

?Ideally, we would like to invite one minister from each congregation to participate because of space limitations. However, if we have an overwhelming response, we will make other arrangements.

This event is intended only for active clergy and law enforcement personnel; it is not open to the general public. To register for this event, or for any questions please contact Enoch Ibarra at Fortuna Police Department by email at eibarra@ci.fortuna.ca.us .
