PRESS RELEASE from NOCSSM | Private School security

Press Release


17th Annual NOCSSM National Church Security Conference to address Private School security.

Dallas, Texas – May 28, 2022 – The National Organization of Church Security & Safety Management (NOCSSM™) will present its 17th Annual National Church Security Conference to be held at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas on August 13th, 2022.

“Every church has gone to a Church Security Seminar. We present more of an advanced technical conference.” Says Chuck Chadwick (President of NOCSSM) “The NOCSSM annual conference is not a conference to try to convince the church to take up arms or to teach the newest choke hold. Each year we have new speakers and new subject matter to add to our attendee's security skill set.”

One of this year’s sessions will centered around the subject of Christian private school security. This subject always reemerges every time there is an incident. We seem to have emotional inertia that is top of concern at first, then dissipates over time.

Chuck Chadwick will be presenting on “Christian Private School Security - Hardening the Target / Private Security Gatekeeper Program”.

While public schools have access to funding and school resource officers, private schools have none of these resources. This session will present numerous options for private schools to harden their facilities and put armed professionally trained, certified and licensed people at the school to defend our children and faculty.

The session will also analyze the Parkland School Shooting as a representative incident of what can go wrong.

Speakers this year will include:

  • Chuck Chadwick - President and Founder of NOCSSM, Former Mega-church security director with over 4 decades of experience in Private Security and 2 decades in Church Security. Chuck heads the largest state licensed volunteer multi-church security force in America. Preeminent Authority in Church Security. https://nocssm.org/
