Activities (Steps) for a Comprehensive Security Program
The Transition Process

We view the Transition Process as a crucial element in providing security. Whether transitioning from one company to another or starting at square one, we work with you from the beginning to ensure a smooth and professional transition.

When our services are engaged the first thing we do is build a transition team. We build that team around a member of our excellent Detachment Manager Staff, selecting the Detachment Manager that has the best knowledge and skills for your industry and your organization. Our DM will meet with your organization to clarify exact details of your security plan. The DM will walk your site; take digital photographs of key locations, items, and personnel (with your permission). Equipped with this information the DM will develop your security team and a set of custom post orders for your location.

With a clear skill set having been identified, the Personnel Department will begin locating primary and secondary officers, security personnel whose skill sets match the requirements on your account. Those officers and Sg will then be pre-trained on your account, along with our Rover and Field Supervision Teams. Before we begin service on your site all Officers, Sg cleared to work your site will be trained on the specific needs and requirements of your location.

Upon assuming responsibility for security duties at your location, our Detachment Manager & Supervisors will be on hand to ensure everything goes smoothly and according to plan.
