We're on the job.

Recent world-wide events demand that schools continue to evolve their safety and security programs. Covert Investigations specializes in assisting school districts with the development of first-class Security departments, plans and programs.

Our integrated and comprehensive approach goes way beyond hiring security guards and telling them where to stand. We take labor issues, OSHA requirements, potential grievances and negotiations regarding work rules and conditions into account. We know the pitfalls of video surveillance initiatives and how to avoid issues of liability and improper training.

Our years of law enforcement experience means that we can recognize and recommend the best security talent available for your team. Our knowledge helps you avoid the potential for embarrassment and liability.

Security Management offerings include but are not limited to:
• Establishment of minimum Security Guard employment qualifications
• Security Guard hiring process guidelines
• Protocols and training materials for Security Dispatch Office
• Development of security incident reports and reporting system
• Suggestions and guidelines for a District’s mobile Patrol Guards
