Paul Markel has written a comprehensive church security manual entitled; “Legion of Michael, Defending the Flock, a Comprehensive Manual for Protecting Houses of Worship”. A professional bodyguard and police officer, Mr. Markel has compiled 30 years of training and experience into an easy to understand manual. The manual is available for immediate purchase as a paperback on Amazon or as a Kindle E-Book.
“Carry a gun to church.” sounds like reasonable advice when the topic of church security is raised. Nonetheless, there is far more to providing professional security than carrying a firearm.
Paul G. Markel is a Certified Protection Specialist and professional bodyguard. Paul wrote this manual to address the numerous other aspects of security in addition to having a firearm available. Within the pages of this text, we will cover numerous topics, to include:
- How to Choose a Team.
- Training for Church Security.
- Justifiable Use of Force.
- Standard Operating Procedures.
- Situational Awareness.
- Communing with the Flock.
- Why the Archangel Michael?
- And much more.
“Legion of Michael: Defending the Flock” is a comprehensive manual for developing and implementing a team of volunteers to provide security for houses of worship. While this is a topic we all wish we did not have to consider, ignoring the threat will not make it go away.
