We do not sell nor represent any security products or services (guards, investigations, polygraph, etc.). We are totally independent and free to recommend any type of solution as opposed to sales where they come with a solution and try to convince you how wonderful it is whether you need it or it fits the problem or not.
Our design services includes providing a complete bid package including specifications that conform to CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) and CAD (Computer Aided Design) drawings that conform to national standards. We also provide Bid Forms, attend Pre-Bid Meetings, help evaluate bids/proposals, attend Pre-Construction Meetings, Construction Meetings, perform inspections during construction, perform a test & inspection of the solution and provide a Punch List of discrepancies.

He majored in Electrical Engineering at Washington State University but completed his formal education in Electronics Technology while serving in the United Stated Air Force (Veteran-Owned company). He has been involved full time with all aspects of electronic security since 1971. In 1988, he started his own consulting practice. In 1990, he became a Certified Protection Professional by the American Society for Industrial Security, which he has been a member of since 1984. In 1993, he joined the Construction Specifications Institute and became certified by them in 1995 as a Construction Documents Technologist. In 2000, he joined the National Bureau of Certified Consultants and became a Certified Professional Consultant to Management. He is also a member of the American Jail Association and WAMOA (Washington Assoc. of Maintenance & Operations Administrators at educational facilities).

The primary purposes of his services are to minimize risk to a facility and to minimize the cost to implement and operate security programs. This can only be accomplished with involvement during the earliest stage of a project, especially with new construction—from prior to selection of project architect to start of conceptual design with the project architect. His primary tasks would be to establish priorities, risk analysis, influence facility layout, incorporate security into the facility's conceptual design, supplement physical design with electronic security, provide professional bid documents, and monitor establishment of security measures.
