OFFERING SECURITY AND PROCEDURES

 Purpose:

The purpose of this document is to provide the procedures to be followed in the handling and transport of the church offertory.

Primary directive – The safety of the persons handling and transporting the offertory is of primary importance.
If confronted, OFFER NO RESISTANCE, GIVE THEM THE MONEY!

No one need be harmed in the defense of these, mostly non-negotiable, funds.

Primary directive to armed guards and police officers – The primary focus of the armed guard is to protect the well-being of any persons they are accompanying and innocent bystanders.

At no time are you to apply deadly force unless the safety of the members of the detail is threatened.

 

Procedure:


A. During the collection –

Member of the security team will check the sorting room for any unauthorized persons, then standby outside the sorting room to monitor any suspicious persons observing the gathering of collection bags or the sorting room.

B. Collection of the bags –

Each team of Ushers will gather the bags –

Ushers will meet in the atrium and place the bags in a bin and proceed via the open stairways on the X side of the atrium to the sorting room. A member of the security team will escort the usher team to the sort room.

Ushers should be in plain sight at all times and in a team of at least two persons.

C. Let the sort begin –

The entire sorting team should be in the room at the time the last bin/bag enters the suite.

The door will not be opened once closed until the sort is done and is ready to exit.

No one is to exit until the sort is done.

 

General Policies:


Everyone who touches the money of collections bags should have a Criminal Background check run on them. This includes the Ushers, sort/count team and security personnel.

No one under 21 years of age in the sort room.

Security team NEVER touches the money.

Every effort must be taken to make sure that there is no room for collusion between two or more parties in the handling of cash.


Use tamper-proof bank money bags for any transport, leaving the tear off serial numbered tag with member of accounting staff or other staff to establish a separation of powers/responsibilities.



 

Safe Room / Vault Construction –

  • Separate room for safe
  • Drop safe bolted to floor
  • Separate Security system for safe room
  • Use of expanded metal mesh in walls of safe room.
  • Safe room walls built to roof deck
  • Video Surveillance in sort room and Safe room

Typical Drop Safe allows deposit through slot in the top without opening the door. Bolt to the floor from inside the safe.

 Night Depository also works well.

Have an Armored car service or bonded Courier service pick up the money.

CONFERENCE SPEAKER HIGHLIGHT

 

Carl Chinn | Author and Speaker

Carl Chinn was introduced to the need for security while serving as Building Engineer for Focus on the Family – a Colorado ministry founded (and led at the time) by Dr. James Dobson. Like others in faith-based management, Chinn had dismissed the subject of emergency readiness & inside security through much of his career, considering it an inconvenient distraction of debatable importance. After all – isn’t that what 911 is for?


Experiences changed his views on the subject. In 1996 he was a responder in a standoff with an angry gunman who took hostages at the Focus on the Family ministry. Following the attacker’s trial, Chinn began researching and writing on the subject of criminal and other incidents in North American ministries. In 2005, he and others began to develop an intentional security program for New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO. He was one of the team of responders who engaged the killer on 12/09/2007. Chinn now speaks to faith-based operators and law-enforcement groups on the subject of lessons learned in ministry security.
