Public Safety & Security Consulting

There is currently a multi-million dollar industry in providing physical and cyber security, safety and emergency technologies and services worldwide.  The problem is, most organizations go to the same companies offering these services and technologies to provide the assessments needed to make an educated decision on what their vulnerabilities are. There is a more efficient and effective solution tailored to your needs so that you can take the overall responsibility for the protection of your own assets.

Mannes is affiliated with established industry experts in both physical & cyber security, forensic profilers, liability mitigation, public integrity, and management consulting with active membership in bench-marking organizations and has the current certifications necessary to conduct threat assessment and vulnerability assessments of your organization, staff, facilities, and operations necessary to make an educated and economical decision on what types of services and/or technologies are needed to make your organization safe and secure. These types of assessments are vital to the integrity and health of your organization.
