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.
