Security Framework document (116 pp.) brought to my attention from the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council, but seemingly of interest to many.
Update: As of 4:30pm today there is news of an attempted attack on a synagogue in Colorado. Improving security is an urgent matter!
This is a good time to review your facility’s security protocols to ensure that they reflect the current need for heightened vigilance. We suggest that you download JCCA’s Security Readiness:A Framework for Security at Jewish Community Centers (JCCs), YM and YWHAs, and Camps. The publication is a valuable tool for all kinds of organizations and the chapter on a “Security Escalation Plan” on pp. 42ff. features six indicators that should cause you to consider escalating security and the included checklist is a helpful template to build an effective response.
