Security Services and Individual Protective Measures Training

As global companies push forward into burgeoning markets in today’s challenging economy their employees are increasingly exposed to new and emerging threats. Maintaining existing accounts and mining new opportunities presents companies with a legitimate requirement to demonstrate a higher “duty of care” standard in response to increased threat levels. Frequency of travel increases exposure to myriad threats proportionately; exponentially when business development requires travel to less well developed regions or regions affected by any number of world events that have unfortunately resulted in skyrocketing crime, increased abductions and terrorism. The personal risk to travelers is not imagined. The business risks are omnipresent and palpable; deal with them intelligently and prepare your employees appropriately, they're your most valuable asset.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR TIME...

CHURCH SECURITY

Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina. Church violence continues to happen with alarming regularity. Churches present unique security challenges for many reasons, not the least of which is that a place of worship is meant to be welcoming. We have extensive experience securing the most difficult venues and providing training to personnel responsible for administering a comprehensive security plan. You can rely on Kembativz Brand to be sensitive to your church's needs while not alienating the congregation or diminishing outreach. Security should never be relegated to parishioners who may be well intended but lack the experience or skill to develop a viable security plan.
