This TSA workshop is designed for:

  • Security Directors and Security Managers
  • Security Officer Supervisors
  • Law Enforcement personnel Involved with Community Outreach Programs
  • Maintenance Supervisors who may sometimes have to assist with security 

This TSA workshop agenda has been structured to teach Security Managers how to perform their jobs at optimum levels. The workshop will focus on participants learning how to develop a step-by-step Security Survey to identify within their organizations the most significant loss exposure and its susceptibility to criminal activity.  Experience has demonstrated that an organization’s security preparedness must be reviewed and tested in order to ensure their procedures are productive. The goal of a Security Manager charged with protecting his or her company’s assets is to proactively identify those risks that may disrupt operational effectiveness. In order to accomplish this, the security manager should conduct a critical on-site examination and analysis (survey) of his or her organization to ascertain the actual current security status. This can be accomplished by utilizing a survey, which identifies deficiencies that determine the level of protection required.  A properly documented security survey will provide background information that will normally support what a security executive advocates.  The survey will also provide justification for the expense of implementing recommendations.

This training workshop offers participants the opportunity to learn from the best. Our knowledgeable workshop leader, Jose Ortiz, M.Ed., CPP, has more than thirty years of law enforcement and security management experience. He is a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) through the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS.) and a Certified Crisis Prevention Instructor, (CPI), through The Crisis Prevention Institute. Mr. Ortiz owns his own investigative security company and is the security consultant for a multi-state development corporation. He has testified as a security expert in numerous security liability cases. Under his direction, workshop participants will receive a security survey, as a model for their use to develop their own surveys for their organizations. They will also be provided “hands on” opportunities from the surrounding community to learn the importance of a security survey and how to use it to reduce or prevent security problems, such as burglary and robbery, as the first priority. To enhance the learning experience, participants will receive a detailed workbook security survey to use during the training that will be theirs to keep for future reference. TSA certificates will be presented to everyone who attends this training.
