In 2017, iParametrics was awarded a multi-year contract to provide security consulting to a large metropolitan county.
Covering over 500 square miles and with a population of over 1.2 million residents, the County is home to one of the largest cities in the United States in addition to six smaller townships. The County was the scene for several large social movements and demonstrations in 2016, prompting County leaders to seek solutions for the protection of employees and visitors to County facilities.
iParametrics was retained by the County to support the development of an enterprise security program and facility risk assessment to better help them deal with the system shocks and stresses prevalent within the rapidly growing and ethnically diverse metropolitan area.
The project entailed the development of an Enterprise Security Strategy and Framework in support of over 120 county facilities (including parks and recreation facilities), 5,000 employees, and 100 security officers. The project included the evaluation of a broad range of public infrastructure, including municipal centers, court and judicial facilities, law enforcement and first responder facilities, detention centers, public parks, libraries, public parks, healthcare and clinical facilities, County maintenance facilities, and leased office space.
We delivered a multi-year, phased security plan designed to build the County’s fledgling security management program into a model for others in the region. As a result of the project, the County funded the development of a Security Operation Center (SOC), improvements to security staffing and management systems, Electronic Security Systems (access control, intrusion, duress & CCTV), maintenance and incident reporting systems, and improved security procedures. iParametrics has been awarded a subsequent contract to further develop the County’s security and crisis management programs.
“Upon award, iParametrics devoted the necessary resources and expertise to begin the project immediately. During the process, they listened and responded to our needs. They ultimately produced final reports that were comprehensive, sensible, and backed by best practice data from across the country. I would highly recommend iParametrics for Security Master Planning and Crisis Management Plan consulting.”County Security Director
