The security and safety team is a group of volunteers who serve as defined by the National Council within the context of the jurisdiction. The Safety and Security Portfolio is the National Council’s primary safety and security planning and operations body. Its main function is to ensure a cohesive security and safety management system, to ensure (to the extent possible) the security and safety of members of the Jamat, Jamatkhanas, Jamati properties and assets, and Jamati activities and events.
The portfolio also includes the National Core Committee (NCC), which is led by a chairman. It includes several portfolio members, who each have a specific functional role and focus on strategy and operational planning and supported by an admin / finance member.
The NCC is supported by a team of Regional Convenors, Area Co-ordinators, Jamatkhana Leads, and Jamatkhana Security Teams, who help the NCC to deliver their responsibilities in the field.
