Church Security Training for Active First Responders
Houston, Texas – U.S. LawShield®, industry leader and America’s largest provider of Legal Defense for Self-Defense coverage, is proud to act as presenting sponsor of the Faith Based Security Network (FBSN) 2021 Security Operations Summit held July 22-24 in Houston, TX. This third annual convention brings together active first responders and those serving in church leadership or safety/security roles from across the country for training and preparation in sanctuary security.
“The Security Operations Summit is the only security event in the nation dedicated to training faith-based security leadership and personnel on intentional readiness and best practices to utilize when evil comes knocking,” said P.J. Hermosa, CEO of U.S. LawShield. “The impactful training FBSN delivers keeps families safer in their places of worship, and we’re proud to support the endeavors of this essential non-profit organization,” he said.
“U.S. LawShield is delighted that Jack Wilson will be honored during the FBSN Security Operations Summit for his life-saving actions during the December 29, 2019 attack at the West Freeway Church of Christ in Tarrant County, TX,” said Hermosa. As a U.S. LawShield member, Wilson was the armed civilian volunteer who led the church’s security program when the confrontation happened. Within a matter of seconds, he stopped a killer inside the sanctuary, saving many lives. “Jack and his selfless heroism are a testament to the fighting spirit we need in our houses of worship when criminals target them. We can’t imagine a more deserving recipient of this distinction from the FBSN,” Hermosa added. Learn more about Wilson’s noble experience here.
