MetroWest is celebrating the seventh year of partnership with Critical Intervention Services (CIS), a Florida‐based security agency that specializes in enhancing public safety through its
Since 1992, CIS security consultants have assisted hundreds of residential communities, property management companies, and HOA Master Associations in reducing crime and premises liability and maximizing the value of property investment.
In many cases, our mission is accomplishing through expert application of crime prevention and liability management methods. Our consultants regularly assist clients with matters such as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), residential property assessments and new acquisitions, crime-free housing certification, expert testimony in premises liability cases, and other services within the scope of well-established doctrine.
And although our consultants are well recognized for their expertise, knowledge is only one facet of our reputation.
Our security consultants have earned unique recognition for achieving success in high crime environments where traditional approaches to residential crime prevention and public safety have failed. When addressing complex and difficult security challenges, knowledge alone is often insufficient. Effective solutions often require an artful combination of expertise, holistic vision, and innovative mindset.
Following is a list of our security consultant services related to crime prevention and liability management in residential communities.
Over the past 30 years, our security consultants have assisted over 1,000 multi-family properties in reducing crime and premises liability. The first step in this process is conducting an assessment to investigate the various conditions contributing to potential risk and design solutions for remedy.
When engaged as security consultants prior to the purchase of new residential and multi-family properties, our experts can provide valuable insight into social and physical disorders often overlooked by acquisition teams and reduce improvement costs by identifying corrective actions prior to purchase.
When engaged as security consultants in the early phases of new site planning, our experts assist developers and architects in proactively reducing crime while simultaneously creating an environment that promotes community activity and positive branding.
To assist property management companies in establishing a baseline level of knowledge among managers, our experts present webinars focusing on important crime prevention and premises liability issues.
Our security consultants assist property management companies in developing effective and sustainable programs for proactively reducing crime and safety conditions contributing to premises liability. And with the added benefits of increasing property values and profitability due to improved branding and reduced resident turnover rates.
In the early 1990’s, our security consultants pioneered a unique methodology for reclaiming and rehabilitating high crime communities. The success of our strategy in reducing crime and increasing quality of life in multi-family communities has been extensively documented by police, news media, and academic institutions and is the central theme of two criminal justice textbooks.
Our security consultants assist attorneys around the nation with case analysis and expert testimony in support of premises liability and security negligence cases involving residential communities and multi-family housing.
