Sheriff’s Office to Host Annual Safety in Faith Summit


On Thursday, August 23, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is hosting its fourth annual Safety in Faith Summit from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. The summit is free and offers leaders, administrators, security team members, and volunteers of all faiths an opportunity to learn more about church safety and security. The general public is also invited to attend. 

Sheriff Shrader introduced the Safety in Faith Summit in 2015 to strengthen relationships with the local faith community. “We are building partnerships between the faith community and local public safety agencies that support overall safety in our communities. This program is in direct alignment with our mission,” explains Shrader. 

This year, the summit features keynote speakers Carl Chinn and Dr. David Benke. Both men were involved in active shooter incidents and during the summit they will share their experiences and offer advice gained from lessons learned. Mr. Chinn served on the security team at New Life Church when he responded to an active shooter at the church in 2007, and Dr. Benke was a math teacher at Deer Creek Middle School when he stopped an active shooter on school grounds in 2010.

Additional presentations include a panel of mental health experts and the national “Stop the Bleed” program. Several partner agencies will also offer safety information throughout the day, including the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office; Arvada, Golden, Lakewood, Westminster, and Wheat Ridge Police Departments; and Arvada, Evergreen, and West Metro Fire & Rescue.

Although the summit is free, registration is encouraged. Interested persons can register at Check-in and a continental breakfast begin at 7:00 a.m. and lunch is also provided for attendees.
