Jewish Nevada has partnered with Security Community Network to bolster community safety and security. Former FBI Special Agent Beth LaManna is leading the effort. This state-wide security program has been launched to better protect members of the Jewish community across Nevada who attend area synagogues, day schools, and other facilities. This security program is designed around an "All Threats, All Hazards" approach to preparedness, safety, security, and resiliency across the community. The program will be connected to SCN's national network, providing direct access to the National Jewish Security Operations Command Center, SCN's Duty Desk and Intelligence Analysts, as well as best practice security resources and support related to policies, procedures, physical security, facility assessments, training, and incident response. 

Camp Security, Awareness, and Preparedness Training (CSAPT) is intended to provide camp leadership, staff, and counselors with the essential tools to ensure a safe and quality camp experience for our children and teenagers. This training brings together several key components of SCN’s larger program offerings, including situational awareness and countering the active threat, to assist camp counselors and leadership staff in keeping the camping community safe and secure.
