Subjects include such topics as: oVerbal De-Escalation - Learning how to calm someone by your presence and verbal skills oRecognizing the "clues" that indicate something may be wrong or is "about to happen."oProtecting the flock from sex crimesoResponding to an active attack (assailant with gun, knife, etc)oWhat does the team do on Sundays and for all other events...oWhere to station team members during churchoAnd so much more...
