HOW WE HELP
COMMUNITY SECURITY INITIATIVE
 CSI Representing the Security-Related interests of Jewish Organizations throughout Palm Springs and Desert Area. Given the rising threat of terrorism, every synagogue and organization is a potential target. Within these institutions are people —many of them children—that we need to protect. Thanks to Federation’s CSI (Community Security Initiative), we can. CSI was created to serve as a single point of contact for critical incident coordination, information and intelligence sharing, safety and security training and resources for our Jewish community.

Our mission

The Community Security Initiative, convenes, prepares and equips Jewish organizations with the information and education needed to be safe and secure.

The Jewish Federation of the Desert created the Community Security Initiative to ensure the Desert Jewish community is prepared, in a proactive manner, to handle security issues within our community. Conceived in  2016,  Jewish Federation partners with Secure Community Network (SCN), the only national Jewish security apparatus under the auspices of the Jewish Federations of North America, to develop a plan to make our community safer.

What does this initiative do?

Our Goals

The CSI focuses on three priorities:

 

  1. Implementing a community-wide communications platform to ensure timely critical responses to security incidents.
  2. Developing, convening and implementing a continuous training plan to ensure the safety and readiness of Jewish organizations.
  3. Assessing and providing recommendations to Jewish organizations about best practices related to their physical spaces including potential improvements.

 

When a Jewish non-profit organization requests our help, the first step is ​recommending a site visit.  We recommend a security assessment walk through a vulnerability assessment that include these deliverables and more:

  • Emergency plan review
  • Perimeter check
  • Security equipment analysis

CSI offers the latest in safety & security training, and certification. All training is free and includes:

 

  • Surveillance detection
  • Behavioral analysis
  • Active Shooter Lockdown Training
  • Terrorism awareness
  • Suspicious activity reporting
  • Emergency planning and disaster preparedness
