COMMUNITY SECURITY SERVICES
Our Regional Security Advisor provides services to community institutions to enhance their safety, security, and emergency preparedness posture. These services are provided free of charge to non-profit Jewish community institutions, including synagogues, day schools, JCCs, and Jewish service organizations.
Security Advice and Consultation: The foundation of a security program begins with an assessment of an institution or organization’s current security posture. Our Regional Security Advisor can advise and coach the institution through that process. The advisor will meet with the organization’s leadership to identify needs and to develop a roadmap towards building a strong safety and security posture and culture. Our advisor also conducts formal Threat, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessments (TVRAs) to support security planning and applications for grant monies from federal, state, and local governments for security enhancements.
Contact us to request a consultation or a security assessment.
Safety and Security Training: One of the most effective, no-cost measures to enhance an organization’s safety and security posture is training its members, staff, and others in situational awareness, Active Threat Response, and Greeter-Usher practices. These classes, and others, customized to the needs of each organization, build personal confidence, preparedness, and resilience in the face of a crisis or emergency and begin the development of a safety and security culture in the organization.
