Security Expertise Matters
Businesses, government agencies, schools and other organizations turn to law enforcement and security professionals to develop crime prevention strategies for protecting their most critical assets.
Many people who work in security and law enforcement, however, have not received adequate training in security fundamentals or guidance on how to conduct effective security assessments.
Security Assessments allow you to identify security risks and vulnerabilities and recommend improvements.
Anyone involved in securing businesses, residences, communities, institutions and other facilities will benefit from this program.
