Security Education & Planning

Long term protection of personnel and assets demands ongoing threat assessment, identification and implementation of mitigation strategies, and the continuous testing of those strategies toward ensuring long-term effectiveness. Carroll Security Consulting is not an equipment re-seller or installer making self-serving recommendations.

Carroll Security Consulting serves a range of clients including local governments, individuals, commercial/industrial facilities, residential environments and the emerging cannabis industry. 

Carroll Security Consulting brings insight and experience to your security plan through three distinct approaches: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), Operational Security,  and Compliance.

CPTED & Operational Security


Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED,   is a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts. Generally speaking, most implementations of CPTED occur solely within the urbanized, built environment. Specifically altering the physical design of the area in order to deter criminal activity is the main goal of CPTED. 

Operational Security, or OPSEC, is a process that identifies critical information to determine if routine procedures can be observed by offenders, determines if information obtained by adversaries could be useful to them, and then executes selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of critical information. 



Growing in popularity, local governments often require new or modifying businesses to obtain a conditional use permit where the intended use of a property is outside the effective zoning ordinance. Local governments may also impose conditions on a business license. In either event, it is very common to find security requirements among these conditions. Carroll Security Consulting is well versed in helping its clients navigate security requirements, negotiate conditions with law enforcement officials or other regulatory agencies. Carroll Security Consulting serves both commercial businesses and local governments. Working on both sides of the table affords Carroll Security Consulting the unique advantage of understanding what both the applicant and the regulatory agency aim to achieve; empowering Carroll Security Consulting to generate solutions and approved plans quickly, efficiently and effectively. security plan cannabis security business and management consultant
