Jewish Temple Security Los Angeles

20121124-153314.jpgWhether it is a orthodox shul in the Pico Robertson of Los Angeles, a conservative temple In Brentwood or Beverly Hills, a reform congregation in West LA or Hollywood, or a Jewish School in Encino or Calabasas, Jewish organizations Deal with similar threats from extremists.

Cells from Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaida and fractured factions operating within the United States actively target Jews and outside of New York, Los Angeles is the largest Jewish population outside of Israel.

So, the question becomes: How we harden our Temples, schools, organizations, and facilities against acts of terror?

The first step is awareness. That may include being a member of organizations sponsored by the Jewish Federation, the Secure Community Network and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and Infragard. These organizations provide valuable intelligence, manuals, briefings and training.

The second step is conducting a full audit of your organization and facility. That includes it’s geographical location, physical security measures, training, employee and contractor screening, emergency procedures, law enforcement response and contingency planning.

The third step is implementing best practices and monitoring the differences.

Lastly, it is important to remember that target hardening isn’t a one time process. It is ever changing and requires constant attention. A professional and experienced security consultant in Los Angeles can assist in reviewing and implementing the process.
