Effective consulting identifies real, practical problems in structures, practices, policies of operation and behavior that are “accidents waiting to happen” or security breaches that have systematically been missed.

Restaurant/ Bar – Wildwood NJ

Outdoor bar patio area elevated 10’ above concrete sidewalk. A 30” high wall surrounded edge, always used for sitting upon. A guest was shoved over wall by another guest who attacked him. Defense position was business owner not responsible for criminal acts on property. Our position was wall was not to code (42” height) and owner should have anticipated problems from drinking and fights, given this hazard. The case was settled for millions.

Car Dealership – Ardmore

A sign directed customers to park in rear of building in a congested area. Yet, in pulling in, a car could be confronted by a delivery truck backing out blindly in the single traffic lane pattern. We recommended enforcing policy of one-way traffic only and some simple devices to assure this. We also recommended having their suppliers sign a policy regarding this and supply certificates of insurance.

Concrete Plant – Philadelphia

Plant had existing cameras but those were only viewed at random times during the day by staff. We recommended an electronic system to convert cameras from this random use to full 24/7 monitoring by computer video analytics, primarily engaged after hours.

Major Industrial Distributor – Bensalem PA

Company employed guard at gate station. Had sign “Must Stop at Gate.” We observed that no one stopped at gate and everyone just drove right in.

Distributor – Philadelphia

Distributor had entrance steps with treads that were too short and not to code, the sprinkler system was improperly installed above suspended system so heat sensors were blocked, sprinkler system inspection was not current, and loading dock cameras were not working.

Medium Security Prison – West Chester PA

A beautiful $1,800 lock device prevented escape except that a little $3 part totally defeated this security and a prisoner could escape with no sign of how they did it.

Manufacturer – Philadelphia

Manufacturer produced steel wire and rods and nothing restricted unannounced visitors from entering an open door on side of building. In fact, employees on break directed visitor through this door to walk down plant floor to office. But hundreds of cut pieces of ¼” diameter rod, several inches long, laying all over the floor made a very hazardous environment for workers and visitors. Also, the manufacturer is located in high crime area but office door had no electric lock/ door release to protect employees. 

Low Income Housing – Vineland NJ

Housing unit had controlled access motorized slide gates but unauthorized cars would tailgate in behind the tenants’ car.  We installed cameras with status alert from gate activation.

Utility Company – Philadelphia

Utility owned an abandoned coal pier on the Delaware River. They decided to not go forward with a half-million dollar security project they bid out to protect pier from riverboat pirates. We observed their bigger risk, which they had missed, was kids on dirtbikes entering from landside into a very hazardous area. 

Major Insurance Company Computer Campus – Great Valley

Client concerned about terrorist or saboteur strike. We identified above ground basement ventilation vents as possible intake of poisonous gas and specified how to protect.
