Training Civilians for Church Security: Israeli Threat Detection, Krav Maga, and Shooting

Officers understand the legal and tactical aspects of having to deal with hostile individuals in a variety of situations. Likewise, most officers have some experience in providing security for various public and private events. These experiences, combined with the officer's character, make the officer the ideal candidate to lead a house of worship security team. No matter how skilled, it is not possible for any officer, alone, to provide adequate security for a house of worship. To be effective, security must involve civilian members of a team.

This class prepares officers to train civilian members of a church security team that provides a safe worship environment without hindering routine activities. Officers will train in the very same methods used by Israeli security to protect churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious sites where people are gathered. Course content includes (1) Israeli methods for threat identification and questioning, (2) physical means of preventing church entry (Israeli krav maga), and (3) neutralizing a threat with a pistol (Israeli shooting methods). Officers should wear comfortable tactical clothing and bring OWB holster, magazine pouch, ear/eye protection, and 250 rounds of ammo. Light to moderate physical activity is involved, including warm-up exercises, stretching, and quick-burst running.  

This one-day (10 hrs.) course is offered only to sworn active-duty or retired law enforcement at the North Carolina Justice Academy in Edneyville. This course is limited to 10 students.
