Sheriff star and city seal

The Orange County Sheriff's Department is committed to safeguarding the community, including all Houses of Worship.

·         Insurance considerations

·         Lessons learned from world-wide attacks on houses of worship

·         Identifying and handling suspicious behavior

·         Working with the OCFA and Law Enforcement to keep your congregation safe
