Strategos’ VP of operations explains the necessity of church security.
Barry Young, Strategos’ vice president of operations, was interviewed by FOX 6 of Birmingham, Ala., as he conducted a training for the Birmingham Baptist Association.
“Since 1999 there have been over 1,700 violent church attacks. Last year we had 261 violent church attacks,” he said. “You have to be your own first responder. Just like the bar shooting and the synagogue shootings. We want people responsible for their own safety.”
