With a heavy heart we want the public to know that the Topeka Police Department stands with the Tree of Life Synagogue, the victims and family of victims of the horrific shooting, and with all law enforcement and first responders in Pittsburgh. Sadly, we know that this type of tragedy can happen anywhere and we want to remind all areas of worship in Topeka and individuals of faith that your safety is extremely important to us. Starting in February we hosted several Safe Church courses where we focused on safety at places of worship. Over 200 churches attended our training. We also offered a free security assessment to every church in Topeka. If your church did not receive the security assessment, you can still have that done at any time, just contact Lt. Steve Roth at (785) 368-9404 or email him at Also, if you were not able to make the training course, we have posted videos of the training on the Topeka Police Department YouTube page. Just follow these links: Part 1: Part 2:
