PHYSICAL SECURITY ASSESSMENT
The physical assessment criteria are broken into two main sections: 1) a review of existing physical security documentation; and 2) an evaluation and assessment of the vulnerabilities of a physical building and/or the curtilage or surrounding areas of the facility. A vulnerability is any area that should be considered for improvement that can be exploited by an aggressor. Our recommendations consider the best practice standards for safeguarding against physical vulnerabilities for exterior and interior spaces, as well as environmental design.
BEHAVIORAL HEALTH/SCHOOL CLIMATE
The behavioral health/school climate assessment is an analysis of a school entity’s climate including the availability of Student Assistance Programs and behavioral health professionals to provide assistance to the school entities. Best practice standards are utilized to to evaluate and make recommendations regarding behavioral health support and school climate.
REVIEW OF CURRENT SECURITY/SAFETY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Security policies and procedures serve as the blueprints and guidelines by which the organization can prevent, mitigate and respond to security incidents. We make sure entities are compliant with relevant statutory requirements relating to safety and security policies, as well as ensure that they have relevant criteria-related polices in place regarding physical security best practices.
REVIEW AND UPDATE CURRENT CRISIS RESPONSE PLANS
For many organizations, the all-hazards emergency operations plan will contain the entirety of their safety and security plan, as well as their crisis response and mitigation plan; however, some organizations may not have a plan in place or may have limited safety and security plans that must be reviewed and analyzed by an assessor.
CRIME PREVENTION THROUGH ENVIORNMENTAL DESIGN ASSESSMENTS
This assessment includes a systematic physical examination of the exterior and the interior premises of the facility, the perimeter, parking lots and contiguous areas. A full inspection of operational systems and interviews with key stakeholders, to collect valuable information on safety and security is conducted as part of this assessment. This assessment is predicated upon the layers of protection principles of physical security methodologies.
Your employees will be the first responders and will need to respond properly to increase survivability. We can provide facilitated training to prepare your entire organization for environmental, technological, and man-made hazards. We incorporate practical exercises into our training that helps build proper muscle memory necessary for high stress incidents.

SITE VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS
This assessment, which is based upon the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, focuses on potential hazards that they may face. The assessment specifically identifies facilities and infrastructures in order to assess risks that are germane to specific site hazards. The three phases of emergency management are assessed with regards to the organization’s crisis plans. As a general rule, the assessment team members also evaluate the surrounding area, neighbors, and the potential for peripheral risks.
