Security Tips For Ensuring Your Church Or Place Of Worship Is A Safe Place For All
Churches and places of worship in New York and New Jersey should be a safe, secure place for worshippers to gather. Unfortunately, with high traffic volumes on days of worship, and an open door policy that most places of worship have, security can often be a difficult task. The safety of your congregants should be a top priority.
Unfortunately in today’s world, these places of worship are not always a place of safe refuge. From vandalism to theft or even attacks churches, synagogues, and temples are just as susceptible to an attack as any office building, store, warehouse or any other public space. Many churches house priceless artifacts, documents, and other sacred relics, in addition to monetary, clothing and food donations boxes, which unfortunately makes these places a target for many thieves.

Our surveillance security systems are designed to provide tasteful aesthetic features of a church or place of worship and can blend in with the design of a church or temple. Many of these cameras are unnoticeable allowing people to worship freely and not feel as though they are being watched.
When installing cameras, it is important to identify the areas the surveillance cameras are most needed. It is recommend to install a combination of cameras indoors and outdoors in order to best protect your building. Install cameras at entrance and exit doors as well as in parking lots.
Often times a criminal will vandalize a camera to hide their identity prior to committing a crime so it is important to have backup cameras on hand to replace any that may get damaged.
