This was the reply I was given by our coordinator at our recent Kingdom Hall Security meeting.
He explained that they aren't allowed to buy any appliances or do any changes to the Kingdom Hall without Branch Approval. "We put in our Letter that a video security system could be purchased for around $600 locally and an App could be downloaded for the Attendants to monitor the cameras what's going onoutside." They said;" such a system would not be needed in our area of the Country, if standard protocols of Security are followed as outline by the Branch." He went on to say that the Branch reminded them that at anytime that they have an access of funds on hand, that these funds should be forwarded to the Branch.
