State and Local Government Security
We work with municipal clients to mitigate threats and vulnerabilities while maintaining a commitment to their public service goals.
Accessibility and security do not have to be mutually exclusive in the government sector
At the heart of municipality security lies the need to protect your employees, assets and information. From best practices around de-escalation training and active assailant preparedness to those balancing workplace safety and accessibility, BPS knows the specific security issues faced in the municipal sector.
We identify gaps in your security and conduct training needed to make your work spaces secure. Our professionals provide important security services for municipal and government clients, including:
- Security master planning
- Security assessment
- Risk and threat assessment
- Security system design, review and construction administration, including RFP and vendor evaluation management
- Crisis management planning
- Developing emergency response strategies
- Security training
In particular, BPS will address the issue of workplace violence that can present a problem at all levels of government including:
- Upset, angry or disruptive citizens who may pose a threat of physical violence to employees interfacing with the public
- Violence, theft or sabotage from disgruntled current or former employees and contractors
- Domestic violence from estranged spouses or significant others that spills into the workplace
- Targeted threats to judicial officials from diversion clients, probationers, litigants, convicted criminals, family and friends
- Violence against staff working with mental health patients in crisis
Whether you are looking to assess real or perceived threats, identify your vulnerabilities and risks, develop cost-effective design solutions, establish a master security plan, implement key training, or launch an effective emergency response program, BPS is ready to help.
Steven’s competency and partnership has been amazing. He’s provided both a technical expertise and real-world perspective that is invaluable.Joshua A., Affinivax
I was very pleased with how BPS developed a “turn-key” process for Abbott to comply with the IA rule. What I mean is BPS developed a regulatory compliant methodology to conduct the VA’s; apply the VA’s to the FDP’s and; provide the subject matter expertise to carry out the VA’s and develop the plans themselves. In addition, BPS remained and continues to remain a partner that Abbott can reach out to for advice, guidance and additional project support when needed. The partnership developed between BPS and Abbott has been good for our business.Robert A, Abbott Nutrition
We truly value the role BPS plays in our access control master plan and we continue to have them consulting for us on cutting edge physical security improvements such as the current project underway to supplement the turnstile project with enhanced weapons screening.Mark Manthei, Security Systems Administrator Froedtert Hospital
BPS has helped to build the necessary competencies in the pipeline terminal personnel who are not security professionals, yet still need to be key players in our day-to-day security program. BPS developed effective training programs that we could deploy across our national learning management system for cost effective delivery. Your team has helped us to stand up a sustainable security program that continuously improves year after year based upon the way it has been built and the training you have provided for our organization.Lori Coupland, Director, Compliance & EHS Holly Energy Partners
