During a physical security assessment, the NJ Security Assessments team will visit your school, business, or industrial site in order to evaluate your levels of preparedness related to terrorist, industrial, and personal security threats.

Using our 100+ years of combined security and law enforcement experience, we will interview your management and security teams, conduct extensive walkthroughs of your grounds, and then analyze potential threats from a variety of perspectives. Our assessments address “active shooter” scenarios and enhanced crime prevention as well as counter-terrorism efforts.

NJ Security Assessments follows a proven three-phase process:

Phase 1:

Initial meeting with school representatives, including at least one member of the school engineering staff, to discuss the assessment process. The meeting will cover existing lifeline systems (water, power, HVAC), cyber security measures, existing plans and procedures, training, and drills. Note that, since we are sensitive to improving security while maintaining a proper learning or business environment, we will not interrupt normal activities at your site during our walkthroughs.

Phase 2:

NJ Security Assessments will conduct a physical walkthrough and inspection of the facility and adjacent exterior areas. This phase includes visual examination of existing security and lifeline systems, with additional focus on providing guidance for improving the physical security of the interior and exterior of buildings. The team will recommend no cost/low cost solutions.

Phase 3:

NJ Security Assessments will prepare a written site assessment report, including a catalog of existing security and lifeline systems as well as existing emergency procedures. The report will also provide options for improving existing security measures and procedures, as well as options in cases where no security measure currently exists. Options will be supported with specific written findings, and shall include supporting information from nationally-recognized industry sources. These options will include photographs of the conditions that were found, with clear notations and recommendations to remediate or mitigate any deficiencies.
