Title: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

 

Description:

CPTED does not require an extensive technical background or understanding. To be effective as a community crime prevention strategy, basic CPTED concepts have to be understood by as many people as possible in easy to understand terms. The following learning objectives should be considered as a minimum for successful application of CPTED to your work and living environment.
 

Learning Objectives: After attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Know what CPTED is;
  • Know the basic premises of CPTED;
  • Know basic CPTED principles and approaches - access control, surveillance, territoriality, legitimate activity support, management and maintenance strategies;
  • Know the CPTED classifications of strategies - organized, mechanical, natural;
  • Know the CPTED approach to space assessment - the 3-D concept;
  • Know how to assess the crime potential within the different environments;
  • Know how to assess the security liability issues in the built environment, and how to reduce premises liability.

Given the positive changes seen in Chicago, we understand that our members are eager to resume in-person events again. As such, we’re thrilled to announce that the Young Professionals & Emerging Leaders in Security (YPELS) will be having their 2021 kickoff event on July 28th from 4:30PM – 6:30PM.
 

Please join us for the first ever Speed-Mentoring event at an exclusive rooftop terrace in downtown Chicago! The mentors come from all walks of security and have generously volunteered their time for this event.
 

Given the diversity of our industry, the mentors have been strategically selected based on their position and past success. The mentors in attendance will come from the following sectors of security: consulting, contract security, systems integration, systems manufacturing, emergency preparedness and public service.
 

Young Leaders will rotate between mentors every 15 minutes, so that you have a chance to connect with everyone. There are sure to be some interesting, challenging, and provocative discussions during the event – so if you have a question or business challenge to tackle, bring it along!
 

Tickets are $30.00 per person and will include small appetizers and alcoholic beverages to encourage networking before, during and after the session. Since this is the first YPELS event of the year, please make sure to reserve your spot ASAP. We look forward to reconnecting with everyone and hope to see you there!

Join us as we take a close look at these costs and explore what you need to know before investing in or upgrading your video surveillance system. 


 

Learning Objectives: After attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Evaluate total cost of ownership

  • Compare lifecycle costs of implementing premise vs. cloud-based systems

  • Identify easy to administer, secure and simple to use video surveillance systems

Title: Competing in the US Contract Security Market

Description:
 

The paradigm shift in the manned guarding market – what it means to the smaller company as it tries to compete against these mammoth conglomerates backed by large investments.
 

The U.S. Manned Guarding market has changed dramatically in just five short years.  Five years ago, there were four companies with U.S. revenues exceeding $1 Billion – which combined represented 50% of the total $22 Billion 2016 manned guarding market.   Today, thanks to all the consolidating at the top, there are only two companies left with U.S. revenues over $1 billion, and these two - considering the recent Allied Universal/G4S transaction – now have the 50% market share.  
 

Also, five years ago, 5% of the manned guarding market represented some sort of electronics security offering provided mainly by Securitas and G4S.   Today, in a $28 Billion market, this figure is more in the 15% range, and growing, due to the large financial commitment by the mega conglomerates Securitas and the “new” Allied Universal to get larger in this high margin service offering – thereby making them harder to compete against by their smaller financially- strapped closely held competitors.
 

In today’s session, I’ll be talking about what this “new” market will mean for the smaller companies.


 

Learning Objectives: After attending this session, attendees will be able to:
 

  • Challenges and opportunities in today's "NEW" market,

  • If you can’t beat them – then join them.  Building the company with the eventual sale in mind.

  • How to increase the “take home pay” when you eventually decide it’s time to sell your company.
