“This past year our team went through the CSAT suspicious behavior training class hosted by Kingswood Security. It empowered our security team to better understand and identify suspicious behavior in our faith community. The conversational interviewing segment gave them the tools and confidence to respond effectively”

Kingswood Security Consulting provided Suspicious Behavior and Situational Awareness Training to our church security team as well as the ushers and greeters. The training was informative, the instructor knowledgeable and it provided us with the skills needed to identify suspicious behavior at the church.

“I wasn’t that excited at the idea of spending a Saturday morning at yet another seminar. It didn’t take but a few moments for me to realize that I was exactly where I needed to be. It was very empowering to become aware of the things I can do and that I can share with the volunteers at our church. More importantly, we have now begun to be proactive securing our church. Also we are making plans to create a safer environment for all who come through our doors. Starting a relationship with Kingswood is truly one of the best things our church has done.”

“Attending your session in April at Unity Church is Saint Paul was very stimulating as well as educational. We now live in different times from what life was before 911. I spent 13 years in law enforcement and have seen this dramatic change up close and personal. Your professional speakers brought to light, with true professionalism, ways which we all must become more aware, alert and develop a strong street sense to protect ourselves and our country. I thought it was a dramatic presentation! Keep up the great work.”

“I recently attended a training information session on security for church leaders put on by Simon Osamoh of Kingswood Security. Mr. Osamoh put together a globally professional group of experts that captivated those attending with information and data that kept us talking on how imperative it is that we educate and familiarize ourselves and our church leadership in the area of security and awareness of active threats. For anyone considering next steps in church safety I would recommend this group of security experts.”

“I thought the church security training put on by Kingswood Security this spring was very useful, I would encourage other congregations to attend and participate.”
