    Thank you. Those are all worthy of study.

    When a local police detective, a patrol officer from a different department, a retired FBI agent and myself put together security plans for the church we attended at the time that are now in use in several churches in the DFW area, the main thing we had to be concerned with was not an active shooter, but custodial interference/child abductions and ensuring our nursery/children's workers were never left alone with a child (for their own protection as well as the child's).

    In the end, we trained and rehearsed for everything from parking lot vandalism to a lost child to an active shooter and everything in between.

    Feel fortunate that you thought ahead regarding the children and their safety. For a very long time the church (in a larger sense) that I belong to refused to accept that the biggest threat wasn't from outside, but from the clergy themselves. Rules regarding minors and adults, both lay staff and clergy are now pretty much set in stone.

    But that did nothing regarding the physical security from the threats mentioned above. The church is still relying on relatively untrained adults to protect the kids for other physical threats. I like the ladies that take care of the kids. But, even though mommies have one heck of a reputation for protecting their own, these ladies aren't trained in physical resistance.

    It a process, in our case a very slow one because of Papal glaciality.

    I sit in the back with all the other jug passing Baptists and Jack Mormons sharing our flasks and checking out each others' sidearms.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Many, many moons ago I was the volunteer music director for a small Baptist Church. One of the deacons always sat next to an open window so as to spit out the juice from the "chaw" that he always had firmly implanted in his cheek.

    I chewed Copenhagen for about 30 years. I must admit to chewing it in church, but I didn' have to spit.

    I always end up sitting in front of the sick guy who is sneezing, sniffling, blowing his nose and coughing on the back of my head.

    It never fails.

    If I get there early a sick person sits behind me. If I get there late, the only seat that is left is inevitably in front of a sick person.
