Home Safety - Prevention/Protection
Many families struggle with the fear of crime. Worse yet, they feel unprepared to address the problem in a practical, affordable way. But help is closer than you might think. Let VERUS SECURITY's specially trained team members walk you through the security upgrade process. With certifications in crime prevention strategies, and years of hands-on experience in providing threat assessments for homes and businesses alike, our active-duty law enforcement officers diagnose your home from the outside in.
We conduct a thorough survey of lighting, landscaping, locking strategies and hardware, mechanical security features such as camera systems, and much more, all in an effort to assist you in "target hardening" your property in a way that does not break the bank. To learn more, contact us today (using the form to the right) or call us at (877) 432-4725.
Hospital Safety - Prevention/Protection
Hospital workers, patients, and guests face any variety of threats, from thefts and simple assaults to sex crimes and episodes of active violence. The liability associated with these risks (and the costs to prevent them) can be crippling to the facility. The question becomes: How does a hospital prepare for these potentialities in a way that's practical and affordable?
At VERUS SECURITY, our specially trained law enforcement professionals "diagnose" your site from the outside in. We focus on the multi-layered approach to crime prevention, utilizing the tenets of C.P.T.E.D. (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) to help "target harden" your site. We put an emphasis on Natural Surveillance, Territorial Reinforcement, and Maintenance/Use of Space, looking specifically at areas such as lighting, landscaping, locking systems, security staffing requirements, asset protection, mechanical surveillance, parking lot/structure safety, and much, much more. Our in-depth surveys cover the gamut of safety protocol, with recommendations designed to address the problems without breaking the bank.
Accidents can occur in the blink of an eye, but the damage wrought, both physical and emotional, can last a lifetime. Let VERUS SECURITY's reconstruction professionals assist your business in determining the facts of an accident necessary for both claims liability and courtroom testimony.

A key area of concern for any business should be how well-lit the property is. Many safety and security specialists agree that lighting is the number one deterrent to crime. But what type of lighting-and how much-can be a key factor in keeping your property safe. Let VERUS SECURITY assist you in making sure your lighting meets industry standards in a way that is both practical (proper light source and fixtures, avoiding glare and light pollution/trespass, etc.) and cost effective.
