Safer Places of Worship

Prevention & Security

Churches need to establish both crime and fire prevention strategies to protect their place of worship.


There are some preventative measures that places of worship can take that can have a significant effect on the reduction of criminal damage, arson, theft, burglary and fire.

Wherever possible, one individual should have overall responsibility for prevention and security strategies to ensure that aims and objectives are put into place, however  due to the many considerations to take into account, you are advised to appoint sub-committees, in order to ensure that all issues are covered and no one person is left with all prevention matters.
