Religious buildings are under continued attack and have been the target of shootings, theft, break-ins, and threats in recent years. Whether it is a church, a mosque, a temple, or another facility used for religious worship, leaders need to think about protecting parishioners as well as the house of worship itself. Here is a list of ways monitored security services can help.
How Monitored Security Provides Religious Buildings with Needed Assistance
Surveillance cameras that are monitored can be of assistance with everything from theft to vandalism. Consider the following applications:
- Theft – Surveillance not only acts as a deterrent, but it can also allow a monitoring company to get in touch with local authorities should a sensor be tripped while no one is present. Having eyes inside the facility reduces the likelihood of a false alarm and speeds up response time.
- Vandalism – One thing that religious facilities are subject to is vandalism from persecutors. While the facility may have insurance, that means deductibles and increased premiums. Catching the vandal in the act is an important part of the facility seeking an alternate means of compensation.
- Fire – Should a fire occur, especially while no one is present, complete loss could result. Fire sensors with monitored video surveillance can eliminate the risk of false alarms while creating rapid response from the local fire department should a fire occur.
- Safety – Should a violent person threaten the safety of those in a religious facility, a monitored surveillance system could result in authorities arriving in time to prevent anyone from experiencing harm.
