SCN (Secure Community Network) is part of the Jewish community’s response to heightened security concerns in the United States. Working in cooperation with major American Jewish organizations, SCN has two main functions: (1) rapid information sharing in crisis situations and (2) enhancing security at Jewish organizations and institutions to protect against terrorism and other threats.
Through SCAN, the organized Jewish community has established a coordinated approach to critical safety and security needs, including expeditious, proactive planning and establishing common standards for improving security at the national and local levels. SCN professionals offer expertise, guidance and assistance to Jewish organizations and institutions about protection against terrorism and other threats.
SCN maintains close working relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, intelligence and counter-terrorism units, and others who provide advice on security and safety matters. SCN also maintains contact with major Jewish communities worldwide to share information and experience and to maximize resources.
