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.

Major Retailer – Philadelphia

Large outdoor inventory. Observed employee stealing merchandise by the forklift load and selling out back gate. Crime was reported.

Women’s Prison – NJ

Prisoners could not escape on their own but any confederate of theirs on the outside could readily get them out with little risk of detection.

Lodge and Restaurant – Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies

Hallway had transition that was not to code, consisting of a single step 1 ¾” high. We recommended installing ramp of 1:10 slope and side railing to meet code, and also directing spotlight onto area and painting contrasting color on riser. Other walkways had slope less than 1:10. We recommended painting light colored band of flowers or patterns and directing light onto area as temporary measure, and correcting slope as permanent measure.

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.

Restaurant – Wilmington DE

A highly successful restaurant along waterfront had walkway outside with dome lights, approximately 8” high, grey color, directly on sidewalk. This was a tripping hazard for any inattentive guest walking in a group or talking over their shoulder. We recommended that a railing be installed above the series of lights to guard against this. 

Chemical Company – Falls Township

Company was concerned about visitors and required that all visitors sign their sign-in book. Next to the book was a sheet of paper which said that by signing book, the visitor accepted policies such as wearing safety glasses, not smoking, no photographs, must be self-insured. The problem was that nothing on the sign-in book itself referenced the policy sheet so the whole procedure would have had no legal enforceability. We identified solutions to close this small loophole, which could mean the difference of millions of dollars in liability.

Private Executive Estate – Montgomery County

Existing burglar alarm installed by a leading major alarm company had radio backup dialer if telephone wires were cut. The telephone wires were plainly accessible from ground level. During a break-in, the telephone wires were cut and the radio backup did not work. The system was not “supervised” meaning there was no indication of wires being cut or radio not functioning. We were contacted following break-in and per our recommendation, the home owner rerouted telephone wires to enter at attic level, not ground level. We identified that the radio dialer was the wrong type to function in the non air-conditioned space where it was located, the glass break sensor was on wrong wall, and a motion sensor was in the wrong location. A “mock strike” by the original alarm company would have revealed these deficiencies without the loss of over $200,000 in uninsured collector’s valuables, and the anguish and the time associated.

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.

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.

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.
