Church Security program

MEDIA RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release                                                                                January 26, 2018                     

 

                                                            Church Security program

 

 

               

                The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office implemented a Church Security Program just over a year ago. The Church Security Program is put on by Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson and Investigator Jake Fowler. In the past few months they have went to 38 Churches in DeKalb County. The purpose of this program is to assist Churches in setting up a security team for their Church, show them what they need to do in case something happens, show them how to secure the church, and they walk around and tell them on what they need to fix so the church is more secure.

                Chief Edmondson says “As we go to our Church we don’t think about bad things happening there, but in this day and time we are not guaranteed. So not only do we need to keep our communities safe but we need to keep our Churches safe as well. If any Church would like for the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office to come to your Church to put on this program please call us at 256-845-3801.”
