Next week, the Cullman County sheriff’s office will be holding a church safety class in order to prepare houses of worship for potential emergency situations.
The discussion will be around concerns such as a church security team, increasing situational awareness, and promoting building security tips. Two to four members of a church that will make up a security team are encouraged to attend the class.
“Saying that our first church safety class was successful would be an understatement,” Sheriff Matt Gentry said. “We had over one thousand citizens attend our class in 2017. We have all seen in the media and online the attacks that evil people have perpetrated against our churches, schools, business, etc. in recent years.”
The class will be taught by Investigator Trevor Clemmons and Deputy Chad Whaley. Both have a combined 30+ years of law enforcement experience.
“At the sheriff’s office our citizens are our top priority, and we wanted to again offer a class to the community on what they can do to protect themselves and their family,” Gentry said.
The class will take place at 6 p.m. July 25th at the Temple Baptist’s Church, 30 County Road 1184 off of AL 157. To register, send an email to Deputy Bradley Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org. To ask any questions you may have, call (256) 734-0342.
