Risk Strategy Group, a data-driven security consulting and training company for individuals, organizations, and places of worship, announced their new “managed service” plans. Amidst growing complexities and challenges in maintaining school security, Risk Strategy Group’s new service aims to provide comprehensive and personalized safety strategies for schools.
“One of the biggest advantages of our Managed Services model is budgeting as there are no surprises. A set fee ensures that school districts have access to security professionals to not only meet their needs, but to serve as an extension of their staff.”Dace Clifton, co-founder, Risk Strategy Group
Due to recent high-profile active killer tragedies, school safety and security planning has never been more important or challenging. According to Texas law, the responsibility of student, staff, and visitor safety lies on the shoulder’s of the school district superintendent but many administrators struggle to find the right balance between prioritizing safety, meeting required standards, managing funds, and embracing effective strategies.
Designed to help administrators navigate the increasingly convoluted landscape of school safety, expert guidance can help achieving key responsibilities, from regulatory compliance to budget management. This comprehensive offering is especially important at a time when numerous technologies and services, of varying value, are being marketed to schools.
Cody Martin, founder of Risk Strategy Group, highlights the difference in their approach: “Unlike typical security services offering off-the-shelf solutions, we provide an unbiased and independent evaluation of your entire school safety program. Our goal is to furnish you with well-rounded solutions that meet your specific needs, giving you the confidence to proceed.”
Risk Strategy Group’s Managed Services will cover a wide array of services including, but not limited to:
- Comprehensive safety planning tailored to each school or district
- Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) review or development
- Staff training and policy development
- Evaluation of current systems
- Independent vetting of safety vendors
- Ongoing support to adopt best practices
- Technical Support and guidance to bolster safety and security
Dace Clifton, vice president and co-founder of Risk Strategy Group adds: “One of the biggest advantages of our Managed Services model is budgeting as there are no surprises. A set fee ensures that school districts have access to security professionals to not only meet their needs, but to serve as an extension of their staff. We are able to streamline safety and security, equipping administrators to lead their institution with confidence.”
Risk Strategy Group’s services are customizable, and may also include technical policy development, firearms training, threat awareness education, or any other requirement specific to a school’s needs.
