Distributed Security trains members of religious groups and faith-based organizations to actively defend against violent attack. Our trainers, advisors, and operators all possess military, agency, and/or law enforcement backgrounds.
Religious groups and faith-based organizations face a challenging set of security threats. Houses of worship must secure physical facilities and defend congregants from violent threat.
Among a myriad of service providers offering passive “security” measures, consultation, and programs, DSI is alone in providing service offerings that offer a true, Active Defense training for your organization.
Combining DSI’s curriculum, training staff, and experience administering high-level security training, your congregation gains peace of mind and returns your organizational focus to ministering to your flock.
Additionally, Distributed Security can help facilitate relationships with local enterprise and agency organizations that might subsidize training programs for houses of worship. Call to discuss the specific needs of your organization to learn more about available programs.

DEVELOPING THE CHURCH SECURITY TEAM
Reference Manual – Developing The Church Security Team has been compiled for houses of worship to develop church security teams capable of actively defending against lethal threats of violence. Active defense is the ability to stop a violent threat, minimizing casualties and damage, and securing the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement. This is accomplished by training select staff and congrgants who are thoroughly vetted and willing to form an armed security force.
