Active Shooter Security Consultant Services

CIS security consultants are recognized worldwide for their expertise in assessing and improving facility readiness for active shooter violence.

CIS security consultants assist clients around the world in assessing and improving facility readiness for active shooter violence.

Robust risk management programs integrate a number of approaches to mitigate risks of active shooter violence. Issues such as workplace violence prevention policies, threat assessment and management, suspicious activity recognition, and positive workforce culture all contribute to reducing the probability of mass homicide in workplace settings.

However, if measures employed to prevent attacks are unsuccessful or an attacker targets the facility in a manner that evades our proactive influence, physical security and emergency preparedness become the most critical lines of defense influencing the overall consequences of the event.

Following are some of the services provided by our team of active shooter security consultants.

Active Shooter Planning and Architectural Design

Establishing effective security criteria and specifications in the earliest phases of architectural design provides best opportunity to cost-effectively mitigate active shooter risk and avoid mistakes that are often expensive and difficult, if not impossible to correct later.

When engaged as consultants in the early phases of new facility design, CIS consultants assist architects in designing effective physical security and emergency infrastructure while simultaneously creating an aesthetic environment that fosters effective workforce activity, positive branding, and public image.
