Office of Community Security

Nothing is more critical than the safety and well-being of our communities. The Jewish Federation provides resources for communal security to identify and proactively address potential safety threats in our region, and to engage everyone in the effort to be trained and prepared.

The Jewish Federation of Broward County has partnered with secure community network to provide enhanced security for our Jewish institutions in Broward County.

The Secure Community Network (SCN) is the first national nonprofit organization dedicated to homeland security specifically on behalf of the American Jewish community. An initiative of the Jewish Federations of North American and the Conference of Presidents of the Major American Jewish Organizations, SCN has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a national model for information sharing and preventative security.

SCN connects Jewish communities across the U.S. to local, state, and federal law enforcement — helping us develop channels of communication — as well as connects Jewish Federations to one another for fast and reliable information sharing. In times of calm, SCN’s security professionals help us review our security infrastructure, protocols and preparedness and make recommendations for enhancements. In the event of a crisis, SCN sends consultants to help communities prepare for, resolve, or recover from an unfortunate situation.



The Jewish Federation of Broward County's Director of Community Security, Dennis May, has taken extraordinary steps to enhance our community's safety, security and preparedness posture. Dennis brings 25 years of law enforcement experience and is dedicated to ensuring that the Jewish community is as secure as possible.
