RPD Promotes Safety for Places of Worship


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 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, April 21. A variety of topics will be discussed, including general safety, preparing for an emergency, firearms in places of worship and pastoral protection.

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.
