Organize your building procedures with residential building security consultants

From understanding access points, to being able to direct emergency personnel in the case of an incident, your building needs a security standard operating procedure manual (SOPM). It’s important you have a team that knows how to respond in cases of emergency while also being helpful for day-to-day requests of tenants. You also need a reliable on-site staff that can document happenings and report them to your team.

We’ll develop a security plan and procedure manual for your site. This manual will be tailored to your needs and our guards will be trained in how to use it to ensure consistent adherence to protocol. We’ll also regularly communicate with your team.
