Crime prevention triangle- for a crime to occur all three elements must exist, crime prevention is the proactive removal of any one element:

O “In the wake of a shooting there is often an outcry for immediate response in the form of more stringent security…” department of justice, FBI, monograph 2008.

As businesses consider the risks and struggle to develop effective safety strategies; planning , training, and physical plant adaptations, many will consider the armed security option.

Local law enforcement will be the first resource considered to satisfy this demanding role because they have;

  • the right people
  • the proper training
  • the best equipment

Hiring the local police department may not be a viable option for you.

Local law enforcement may not always be the solution for many reasons including; agency policy restrictions, direct costs, department staffing shortages, police budget constraints, union contracts, political influences and the need for your business to retain management control of the assigned staff.

Raven Executive and security services is always a viable option to serve in this demanding role.

Raven Executive delivers:

  • The right people – we use the same human resources as the local police. Raven uses only active duty or former Michigan police officers and military personnel with real world experience.
  • The proper training – we mandate training to Michigan commission on law enforcement standards benchmarks.
  • The best equipment – Raven provides and closely regulates the defensive and protective equipment deployed consistent with the international association of chiefs of police (I.A.C.P.)recommendations.

Raven is dedicated to applying these resources as defined and articulated by the needs of the client and our resources and services remain under the full control and direction of the client.

Raven is prepared to deliver an effective rapid response and deployment resource as part of a comprehensive crime prevention and violence mitigation strategy-

  • Assimilating into your corporate culture as a partner and visible deterrence to violence
  • Supporting the evaluation and ongoing assessment of risk factors
  • Supporting effective policy and action plans focused on violence mitigation
  • Deploying qualified human resources in a “first responder” role
  • Delivering adequate training to the “first responders”
  • Providing the necessary and appropriate equipment to the “first responders”

Liaison with local police and fire departments for the integration of emergency action plans

The term rapid response and deployment is defined as;

“…the swift deployment of personnel and resources to developing or ongoing life-threatening situations where delayed deployment of emergency personnel could otherwise result in death or serious bodily harm to innocent persons.” -IACP national law enforcement policy center, 2013
