JUSTNET Adds Resources for Houses of Worship

Reports of mass shootings and other threats to public safety monopolize the headlines. Houses of worship have been targeted along with malls, military recruitment centers, schools, theaters and other gathering places. If you're looking for resources to help houses of worship in your community prepare to respond to, and mitigate the consequences of, an emergency situation, the JUSTNET website offers a new resource section that can help. And look for information on a new app under development by the National Institute of Justice that will help houses of worship evaluate facilities and create plans for preventing attacks and other catastrophic events. Visit for resource information, and check back often for updates on app development and on new resources.
