Throughout history, churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious buildings have been pivotal anchors in the community. Along with their primary use as a place of worship, they have also served as places of refuge, schools or community centers to name a few. In order to accommodate these and other needs of today’s society, religious centers have adapted their buildings to be more user friendly while maintaining a high level of safety and security for the occupants and facilities.
Where security is concerned, there are no absolute safeguards. However, there are proven crime prevention techniques that can help improve the physical security and safeguarding of a facility or other valuable assets. The most common of these techniques is the implementation of a mechanical lock and key system, supported by a key control management system.
