U.S. Attorney's Office to Host Protecting Houses of Worship Training Seminar

FORT COLLINS - The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado announces it will co-host a Protecting Houses of Worship (PHOW) event in Fort Collins on November 17, 2022. This interfaith event will focus on providing faith-based institutions with information from law enforcement and faith-related security experts about the threats of violence facing houses of worship and responsive measures to counter potential risks. 

The location for the event on November 17, 2022 is the Congregation Har Shalom at 725 West Drake Road in Fort Collins. If interested in attending, please RSVP to Jillian Dardani at Jillian.Dardani@usdoj.gov.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office plans to co-host roughly four PHOW trainings a year across Colorado. The PHOW programs are interfaith events hosted at a community center, church, mosque, synagogue or other faith-based facility for participation by all interested faith-based organizations in the city or region. 

The event in Fort Collins is sponsored by The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado, Community Relations Service, Rocky Mountain Region, and the Fort Collins Police Department.
