Public safety and police departments are under increasing scrutiny to meet the challenge of new laws and increasing security threats. Drawing on an objective perspective of your agency’s performance and practices can lead to new efficiencies, improved oversight and management, validation of the department’s strengths, and identifying areas for improvement. Most importantly, an independent perspective provides greater transparency and an opportunity to regain or deepen your community’s trust. Our team has led, planned and implemented many of the most comprehensive advancements in public safety over the past three decades, from the local, state and national levels of government to academic and medical institutions.


Our team will conduct an objective evaluation of your police department’s operations to help improve its performance and counter any gaps and deficiencies with measures aligned with national law enforcement best practices. Police consultant services include assessments of the entire department or individual units (e.g., internal affairs) or issues (e.g., community policing, use of force, staffing).
