Places of worship and church-related facilities must maintain a delicate balance between providing an open and welcoming environment and safety and security for those participating in their services and events. For more than 20 years, Salient has worked in partnership with church communities to address their physical safety issues by providing video surveillance as a deterrent to crime and violence. Improve safety for your members, leadership, children’s ministry and facilities with Salient.

In this educational presentation, you will learn to analyze and design appropriate surveillance coverage for your facility.  Whether your organization is a small, community based faith group or a large mega-church, this presentation offers valuable information, encompassing not only the physical aspect of security, but the human component and the business component.

Several topical elements will be covered from the physical environments that require security coverage through the process of reviewing products, assisting with information regarding qualifications of installers and the level of knowledge required to train and operate the systems.  Technical information is provided for those with appropriate experience and interest.
