Customized Security Programs

Having performed audits and assessments of security programs throughout the country, we had firsthand knowledge of the “status quo” in the contract security industry. We decided that unless we could dramatically improve on the programs we had audited, we would have no interest in offering these services. An 18-month research project resulted in the formation of Chesley Brown International, Inc. and the development of the Chesley Brown Client/Partner Program. This program maximizes flexibility and customization while providing our clients with direct access to a number of consulting services and capabilities. Through the belief that true security management requires a top to bottom approach, not simply staffing a property with guards, Chesley Brown International has become the true leader in security management.

F.L.I.E.R.S.
The F.L.I.E.R.S. provide the training and transitioning of officers at new properties and will conduct ONSITE assessments of Chesley Brown® properties throughout the year. These highly trained officers will also be called into situations where their expertise is required to handle crisis situations, special assistance or additional training.

Chesley Brown® ONSITE
After the initial audit, quarterly checkups are made via Chesley Brown’s exclusive ONSITE program. Our background as security consultants allows us to step back from our operations and provide a self-critical assessment. To document this activity, we have created an internal measurement tool by which each property is graded.

Chesley Brown routinely interacts with local law enforcement agencies. Developing a close working relationship with the local police force can prove invaluable to the security of your property. As part of our program, Chesley Brown® will work to develop this relationship as well as handle all administrative functions related to the employment of off-duty police officers at your property.

Tenant Awareness & Education Programs
Helping your tenants and customers to stay safe is our top priority. We offer classes and routine reminders on how to better protect themselves on topics like: shoplifting, counterfeit bills, parking lot safety, Lock Take Hide program, active shooter, natural disasters, suspicious activity and a wide variety of other topics.
