JCPD to Host Worship Security Program
In response to recent incidents of violence at houses of worship across the nation and world, the Johnson City Police Department, in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, will be hosting a House of Worship Security Program on Tuesday, July 16 from 6-8 p.m.
The program was developed in partnership with the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the purpose of education houses of worship on emergency preparedness, recognizing the need for churches to be open and welcoming to members while still promoting safety and security for those in attendance.
The presentation is open to the leadership and security team members of local houses of worship. For more information contact Heather Brack at (423) 434-6105.
