Seminars on Keeping Your Faith-Based Organization Safe

Back by popular demand, FCPD Crime Prevention Unit is hosting two free Worship Watch seminars in the coming weeks. Implemented in 2015, Worship Watch is a program similar to Neighborhood Watch, but catered towards houses of worship and keeping them safe. The seminars open a line of communication between congregants and officers, and attendees receive crime prevention tips and training specific to protecting their places of worship.

The first seminar is on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield and the second seminar is on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at the new Public Safety Headquarters in Fairfax from 6 to 9 p.m. Due to space limitations, registration is required for each seminar.
