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.

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.

Parking Garage – Philadelphia

Pedestrians were repeatedly walking up the cars-only down ramp, at risk for being struck. We recommended a system to detect people and prevent this. At another location with valet parking where valets would often speed, we recommended a system to monitor car speed and identify problem valets.

General Contractor – Camden NJ

The jobsite trailer was exposed to public street because temporary fence abutted either end of trailer. We recommended a sonic detector if anyone broke into trailer from underneath through floor. We also recommended backing up all data and bolting computer, a sign-in book with policies for deliverymen entering site, and better maintenance of water and mud under gate used by pedestrians to avoid slips.

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.

Car Dealership – Philadelphia

We observed that a 60’ lamppost was missing three of the four nuts on the bolts that hold post to its base, creating a very dangerous situation where the lamppost could have fallen onto Roosevelt Boulevard.

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.

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. 

Mini-Storage Facility – Philadelphia

Despite fences, razor ribbon and burglar alarms, thieves in this bad neighborhood kept penetrating from the rear of the facility. We recommended paying or rewarding the neighboring residents whose houses overlooked this area for reporting if they saw anything.

Major Insurance Company Campus – West Philadelphia

Large quarter square mile urban campus challenged by surrounding community’s teens. We recommended dedicating a couple basketball courts in exchange for the players keeping an eye on things.
