ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Several churches are getting together over the weekend to discuss security in churches.
There will be a seminar Saturday on church safety and security to raise awareness for worshipers.
Organizers want congregations to develop plans and teams to be alert and make going to a church safer.
The churches don't usually have these security precautions in place.
"So what I do is I try to make their level of awareness heightened and then teach them on exactly what to look for and how to deal with it once it happens," said Lamar Milledge, CEO of Gladiator Instructional Services.
For those who would like their church to participate in the class, they can call (229) 938-8969.
The event will be Saturday at 230 South Jackson Street, Suite 210.
Registration will be at 8:30 and the seminar will start at 9.
