Mosques, churches, synagogues and all places of worship should be havens from the chaos of life.
From RPD Press Release:
Mosques, churches, synagogues and all places of worship should be havens from the chaos of life. Safety is paramount and adopting a few simple procedures can dramatically increase the security of these sanctuaries and help to protect the people within and the surrounding property.
The Richmond Police Department will be hosting a safety and awareness forum for religious gathering places. The forum will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 20. A variety of topics will be discussed, including general safety, preparing for an emergency and staffing for special events that will draw large crowds.
The forum is free, but registration is required to accommodate all attendees. Registration will take place on-site before the event from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Early registration is also available online. Congregations are invited to send no more than four representatives.
The forum will be held at the Richmond Police Training Academy, 1202 W. Graham Road. For further questions please contact Officer Kimberly Cheatham-McClarin at 646-6754.
