Church Security- The Right Way! 

SFI is an industry leader training over 4,000 students since 2016 

Shield Force International specializes in understanding what works in the Church environment to reduce Disturbances, Injuries, Law Suits, Loss of Property, and Loss of life.


Churches must adequately prepare by having written documentation in place in addition to receiving professional training that is “Adequate to the Task”. We help simplify that process by providing the most relevant information and training that meets the standard of contemporary care without jeopardizing the core mission of the church!
