Safe in Place Training

Safe in Place is a video presentation designed to help persons identify, prevent and report child abuse. It is offered by the Diocese of Baton Rouge as part of the ongoing commitment of the Catholic Church to employees and volunteers who are responsible for ministry to children and young people.

The video can be accessed in three ways for your convenience:

  1. Online at www.diobrocyp.org
  2. By contacting Nicole Kiefer in the Parish Office or Charlene Lauman in the School Office to request a video showing.

Individuals accessing the video via Internet will be required to take an online test after viewing the video. There are complete instructions for testing on the Safe and Sacred Learning Center site. Successful online test scores will produce a certificate that individuals will forward to Nicole Kiefer in the Parish Office and Charlene Lauman in the School Office. 

For more information regarding the Safe in Place video or the Safe and Sacred Leaning Center, or any other aspect of efforts in the Diocese of Baton Rouge to ensure the proper safety of our children and young people, contact the Office of Child and Youth Protection at 225-242-0202.
