Want to build community ties and increase security at your facility?
In business we often look for actions that generate an easy win-win. We at Invictus Consulting LLC have a great suggestion that will make an impact with your community relations and increase your organizations security all for very little money. What is it?
Host a law enforcement appreciation day. Contact your local head of the precinct or post commander and invite them over. For the cost of some coffee and pastries you will get a chance to meet and thank the men and women that are protecting you as well as they will get to learn what your business is about. To quote Dan Stephens, one of our founding partners with almost 30 years law enforcement experience, “If I was a business owner I would want the police intimately familiar with my business. Where we are, what we do, and who we are. In the event of an emergency, the more information they know about you the easier it is for them to assist.”
I like to tell clients benefits are twofold. First they know what the inside of your facility looks like so if they ever have to enter they are more comfortable with the surroundings and know their way around. Secondly, it impacts basic human psychology. With law enforcement knowing the people inside the business and having a positive interaction with your team, who is to say it doesn’t translate into some after-hours patrolling just to make sure your facility is secure?
I know coffee and donuts sounds a little cliché, but let’s be honest: Who doesn’t like coffee and donuts? More importantly who wouldn’t want to build up some community relations and improve the security of the work place?
