A community should not have to experience police no-shows, screaming drug abusers, people using building alcoves for bathrooms, all while people selling drugs and committing property crimes are not held accountable. While the reasons for this state of affairs are varied and complex, there are solutions.
RSU’s Neighborhood Security program can be an important piece of a community’s public safety infrastructure. Quickly evolving public safety challenges now require private, flexible security solutions.
RSU understands the complexities of local government, business, and community public safety challenges and provides services that meet the moment. We use well-trained security personnel who know how to build relationships, de-escalate situations, use force of personality to gain compliance, help others feel safe in their presence, and represent our clients’ interests, even in tough situations.
Our Neighborhood Security services have been proven effective for our municipal, building ownership, and business clients by creating a “safety bubble” throughout a neighborhood or central business district.
RSU Neighborhood Security personnel are accepted as a helpful presence even for citizens who are reflexively opposed to police and security presence.
While a community should be able to expect public safety on its sidewalks and neighborhoods, in this extraordinary time our cities, businesses, and citizens, need extra help in providing order, safety, and preservation of public and private property. RSU is here for that.
We want to bring a safety bubble to your neighborhood.
We begin by understanding your community, what security challenges you are facing, who the key partners for change are, and how this change would happen. We start by building relationships with those most effected, ask a lot of questions, then build a security change model specifically for your community
A Neighborhood safety bubble relies on us working closely with local government officials, other contract holders, law enforcement, neighbors, businesses, and the people creating the chaos themselves. This is their community as well, and it is imperitive to us that they are communicated and interacted with with dignity, respect, and as a member of the community that we are here to serve. This is how a community works: Good relationships, clear communications, and accountability to one another.
We establish feedback loops with our clients and community partners to learn and improve from all the people we work with as we grow. Our Neighborhood Security teams listen to all of the community members, making sure to not only serve our clients, but to also advocate for those that have trouble being heard.
This is where we begin to build our RSU Neighborhood Security team, by hiring from within the community we are partnered with to bring change. We Provide these community members with our unique and proven Neighborhood Security Training and oversight.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a commonly-used term for designing the built environment to contribute to a sense of safety. The four elements of CPTED are: natural surveillance and visibility; lighting; territorial reinforcement and space delineation, and natural access control. Together with our partners we can make our Neighborhood design work for us.
Our team has deep knowledge of all aspects of public and private security; how businesses, communities and cities actually work; and how to be good effective partners. We make it our business to understand the political, social, and operational context of every community, county and state we operate within.
