About Levine Security Solutions
Levine Security Solutions was established in 2011 in Northeast Ohio as a customized security consulting organization.
With over 75 years of combined experience, our senior members are active duty law enforcement, fire safety specialists, and cyber security analysts. Serving in both the public and private sectors, we leverage our experience, knowledge, and training with up-to-date techniques and technology to meet both traditional and modern threats.
As SWAT officers, detectives, crime scene investigators, fire inspectors, and I.T. consultants, we’ve seen the many different forms and degrees in which threats appear. In our active duty positions, our members are exposed to the best response and protective measures. We constantly integrate them into our custom-tailored security solutions.
At Levine Security Solutions, our primary focus is in helping organizations be better prepared for manmade and natural disasters. We help commercial and business institutions, houses of worship, schools, and other soft targets gain confidence in their ability to plan for, react to, and recover from life-threatening events.
We help organizations create their own Crisis Management Team and provide emergency preparedness response training for staff members and administrators. This allows for the Emergency Response Plan to be committed muscle-memory and decisive action in the face of conflict.
For management personnel and primary stakeholders, Levine Security Solutions creates a workplace violence policy with protocols, facilitates tabletop exercises, and coordinates emergency drills. Training for employees in the areas of fire safety, trauma-first aid, and de-escalation techniques are also available. If you’ve come this far, it’s clear that safety is important to you and your organization. We believe that safety is not something that you should hope for, but together we can plan for.
