A Long History of Crime Prevention
SMSI was conceived in 1988 in an effort to respond to a special set of identified security needs. Historically, companies have relied on vendors such as contract security-guard agencies and other vendors for advice in the development of loss prevention strategies. Often this advice has been biased and driven by the need of the vendor to acquire additional recurring business. That advice has been lacking in objectivity and has failed to keep the best interests of the client central. Our expert security consulting team recognizes that there is a need for a service that would place the needs of clients above all others. That is the reason SMSI and their expert security consultant team has chosen not to align themselves with any contract guard service or any purveyor of electronic security systems or products, in order to maintain objectivity.
It has been estimated that the dollars spent for all forms of security and crime prevention throughout the United States exceeds by three or four times all monies expended by all the various forms of law enforcement throughout the country. However, funds that are budgeted for security and loss prevention programs are not always allocated in a cost-effective manner. Frequently, there is confusion applying the proper mix of security personnel and technology. Many times, security dollars are spent in direct response to a current crisis. Those dollars usually do not net sufficient return on investment. Remember, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Security budgets must be targeted at crime prevention and risk reduction. It is for these reasons that SMSI’s expert security consultants have stepped into the mix. SMSI is offering a contemporary innovative service targeted at maximizing limited resources.
SMSI Inc. was conceived to be supportive to those organizations that have limited in-house security expertise. Most businesses do not require an expert security consultant every day of the week. However, most companies do require that level of expertise from time to time throughout the year.
SMSI was founded in order to afford our clients with the option of outsourcing their Security Management needs. SMSI’s expert security training team can provide ongoing professional security management expertise in a manner that does not require their clients to shoulder the payroll burden of maintaining this expertise in-house.
