Pilot training from ProSPeReS project in Warsaw

Another pilot training session of the ProSPeReS project took place in Warsaw from June 12 -14, 2023 at sites administered by the Jewish community. During the first day of the workshop, the project’s experts trained religious workers and security managers in religious communities on how to recognize and respond to potential threats that may arise in places of worship. They also presented key recommendations to enhance the security of worshippers that have been developed as part of the work to date. The next two days were devoted to thematic panels on the practical aspects of the training, where security management personnel learned, among other things, to recognize dangerous situations and respond appropriately to them. On the last day, a practical training session was conducted using elements of virtual reality.

The event was organized by the Jewish Community of Warsaw and the University of Lodz.
