Security Administration and Management

At JD Security Consultants, we assist you in identifying, organizing, staffing, and training security forces, guiding you through planning, direction, control, implementation, and budgeting for a successful security operation.

Security Assessments

What are your risks and vulnerabilities? You may think you have identified them all...until you receive the results from a comprehensive assessment of your security program. We provide:

  • Crime Risk Analysis
  • Foreseeability Studies
  • Security Surveys
  • Threat Identifications
  • Vulnerability Assessments

Security Awareness and Education

One of the most critical components for a strong security program is to ensure that your staff, workforce, tenants, even customers are educated and aware of potential risks and protection measures. JD Security Consultants provide training programs customized to your organization's physical and intangible risks.

Crime Prevention

An ounce of prevention...Our team will show you exactly how you can decrease the risk of crime in and around your organization through technology, analyses, training, and more. The price of prevention is far less than those of litigation, loss of property, even loss of life...

Emergency Response and Crisis Management

Developing these critical plans (prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery) before you need to put them into action is one of the best investments you can make for your business and your people. JD Security Consultants will identify potential risks, and then help you outline your response procedures, and implement your emergency recovery plans, getting your team positioned for fast action should a situation arise. This is one you should not bury in the bottom of the pile.

Expert Witness Testimony

Each security litigation case is distinctly different and involves complex issues that may be difficult to interpret. In order to adequately support your case, extensive research of information and documents must be conducted. Also, technical issues such as access control, CCTV, and security systems may be reviewed. These are time-consuming activities that can be performed best by a security expert.

JD Security Consultants offers security professionals that are not only Board Certified in Security Management and Physical Security, but also have over 25 years experience in the law enforcement and security field. We have worked on cases for a wide variety of clients, including those involving college/university, hospital, and parking lot security litigations.

We are qualified to provide you with:

The development of deposition questions for security experts, management, and security employees.

A review and analysis of reports, statements, and depositions.

The preparation of discovery documents.

Court testimony and documentation for depositions, mediations, arbitrations, and trials.

The creation of charts, graphs, photographs, and models to be used as trial exhibits.

Comprehensive and detailed written reports with opinions and conclusions.

Security Lighting Surveys

Lighting is the most efficient and cost effective security feature available to deter crime and reduce the fear of crime. Many inadequate security lawsuits involving parking lots cite insufficient lighting as a major factor.

NEW SECURITY LIGHTING GUIDELINES FOR ILLUMINATION LEVELS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED. In 2003, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) issued these security specific lighting guidelines. JD Security Consultants will conduct a security lighting survey to assist you in complying with these updated requirements.

Security Policies and Procedures

When was the last time you reviewed your security policies and procedures? A solid security program demands that you have updated, written policies that protect you and your constituencies. JD Security Consultants will review your policies and procedures and ask you the important questions you never thought to consider.
  • The Clery Act

    (The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act) is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses and security policies.

    We will help you protect yourself against violations, fines up to $250,000 and 10 years imprisonment, of the Privacy Law, HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act), administered by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) (within the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services) that investigates complaints about failures to protect the privacy of health information and medical records.
  • Workplace Violence

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), there were 564 workplace homicides in 2005 in the United States, out of a total of 5,702 fatal work injuries. The numbers are staggering and something no responsible business can ignore. Our professionals can help you implement strategies to make your workplace safer. The potential of violent crime in all work environments cannot be ignored.

Premises Security Liability
