CIS Partners with Toys for Tots
Submitted by: Kendra Josephs, Staff Accountant

Every year the US Marine Corps gathers toys for the less fortunate via their toy drive, Toys for Tots. With their help, and the help of partners like Critical Intervention Services (CIS), Toys for Tots ensure that children in need receive gifts for Christmas. Toys for Tots begins collecting new, unwrapped toys in October and continues accepting donations until the distribution day in December.

This was the second year I had the honor of helping Toys for Tots distribute toys to families as an employee of KKP and CIS; it is truly a rewarding and memorable experience.  CIS has built a reputation for community involvement and bettering through the CCBPI methodology, the opportunity to be a part of this fantastic program is another outlet for CIS and its employees to show how much we care about our neighbors. There are no words to describe how humbling it is to participate and see the appreciation on the parents' faces as they picked out toys for their children.  

This year Toys for Tots served 20,200 kids over the two-day distribution event that took place at Brighthouse Fields on December 19th and 20th.

Take a Tour of the Public Safety Center
Submitted by: Chief Hector Rodriguez, Chief of Protective Services

Recently, we once again had the pleasure of touring some new Orlando clients through our Public Safety Center (the location of CIS headquarters) in Largo, Florida. The clients were able to get a behind the scenes look at our 24/7 Operations Center, meet with our department leaders (Accounting, Risk Management & Professional Standards, Human Resources, and Command Staff), as well as tour our training facility, which trains private and public sector practitioners internationally.

I highly encourage anyone that would like to tour our facilities to send me an email to setup a tour. It is very important to us that our clients fully understand the resources that are part of our service and see all of the work that goes on in the background to provide protection for clients' properties and mitigating their liabilities. These tours are truly a great experience for clients, not to mention a lot of fun! Transportation as well as lunch would be provided to any client that schedules a tour. I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and get to see why CIS is "The Critical Difference".
