The CCSO Community Services Section and Homeland Security Section are hosting Church Safety & Security Presentations on the following dates:

• Thursday, February 22 at 7 p.m. at the Indian Head Village Green
• Wednesday, March 7 at 2 p.m. at the La Plata United Methodist Church
• Tuesday, March 13 at 7 p.m. at Grace Church Waldorf
• Thursday, March 22 at 10 a.m. at the Waldorf West Library

The purpose of the presentations is to educate church leaders and members on how to keep their places of worship safe, about different types of suspicious activity to be aware of, and also on what to do in case of an emergency such as an active shooter or other violent activity.

While these presentations are open to the public, we encourage those interested to notify their church leaders so that the appropriate staff or church members are also present. Please kindly RSVP to Connie Gray at grayc@ccso.us or by calling 301-932-3080, or to Janelle Love at lovej@ccso.us or by calling 301-609-6538.

Thank you, and we look forward to sharing this important information with you.
