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 which may have a significant effect on the reduction of criminal damage, arson, theft, burglary and fire.

Prevention and security strategies, with aims and objectives should be put in place.

You are advised to appoint sub-committees with an individual assuming overall responsibility to ensure that all considerations are taken into account.
