In 2010, Inter-University Consortium on Political and Social Research (ICPSR) (Ann Arbor, Michigan) published research showing that between 1980 and 2005, there were 137 cases of church shooting in the United States alone and the number of shootings and homicides in or on church property continues to grow. Over the course of the past 17 years, there have been a recorded 1457 number of deaths in the United States at places of worship alone.
Twenty years ago the discussion of church safety or security was non-existent. Unfortunately in today's society, churches are a targeted for acts of violence and crime. These incidents included shooting, domestic violence, burglary, robbery, assaults, vandalism, and so on.
K & M Safety Consultants, LLC, a faith based company, was founded on the growing need for competent and qualified church safety training. Favored by church insurance underwriters and providers, we have trained numerous safety and security teams throughout Ohio.
We train Administrators, Staff members, Safety/Security Teams, Congregation members and others on methods to protect the property, building and more importantly themselves.
