Counter Terrorism Security Advice For Places Of Worship

Alaris is a free app that gives advice on how to prepare for and respond to threats from terrorism and crime. Alaris is for any place of worship, from any faith, and gives expert advice on all aspects of security: from mail handling to evacuations.

Why Alaris was created

In March 2019, 51 people lost their lives in the Christchurch mosque attacks. A month later, 259 people were killed in the Sri Lanka Easter bombings.

These tragic events highlighted the need for places of worship, no matter what faith or denomination, to be empowered to protect their worshippers.
