Comprehensive Manual – Securing the House of Worship has been compiled for houses of worship to develop church security teams capable of actively defending against lethal threats of violence.

Included with this manual is a thumb drive with several digital files containing videos along with documents and a customizable, interactive, Individual Training Plan that you can print for the use of your team. DSI’s individual training plan should be the cornerstone of any security team implementation.
