Church Safety Programs

The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office has developed a class we call “Church Shield”.

This course covers all areas of Church or House of Worship Safety. The class allows us to walk you through the establishing of a security or safety team. We bring issues to the forefront of conservation, such as what assets do you have or need to have, who needs or wants security in the church, communications both internal and external, concealed carry issues as they pertain to the church and the church grounds, and what to do and expect if an incident occurs at your facility.

We then offer the opportunity to have one of our deputies, who are certified in Site Security Surveys, to come and walk through your facility conducting a Safety Survey. We then will make our findings, and suggestions on making improvements to your security measures available to you in a report. 

We can bring our instructors to your church or facility.

If you are interested in scheduling this class or want more information, please call 704-878-3180 and ask for Sheriff Campbell or you can email him at
