Our uniformed security guards are trained to act as a criminal deterrent by adopting the principals of the C.P.O.P (community police officer program) methodology. Simply put, our guards are encouraged to be an approachable source of information to patrons, residents and employees. Letting the public know that we are there for them generates a feeling of community and safety.
The placement of our security guards is what generally places ATSS in the position to
confidently describe the implementation of our security guard project as authentic.
Our security guards are trained to make visible foot patrols throughout their posts in undetermined patterns. We encourage our personnel to interact with your patrons and
employees in addition to standing a fixed post
ATSS has developed a theory of “Enforcement through Reinforcement”
The management, having thirty combined years of security and law enforcement
experience, has realized that prevention of crime can be accomplished by utilizing tactical
approaches, rather than accusations and the traditional methods of our predecessors.
The art of verbal judo is commonplace in our organization and has often been effective in
deescalating volatile situations.
