Our Story

We never would have guessed that being on the school safety patrol in elementary school would have led to a career in school safety and security, but it did! and we are so grateful for it. Our passion, for helping schools provide a learning climate for kids to be their best, is at the core of everything we do. Over the course of our education and career, we have been acquiring the knowledge and skills that allow us to understand and create new concepts and innovations to truly get to the core of a problem. We have learned that simply masking symptoms does not alleviate the core issue and until the core issue is addressed and resolved, the problem will persist and grow.

Our Owner and Chief Data Evangelist Jason Destein is passionate for helping people get the best information possible so they may make the best decisions possible for their business and well being. Practicing since 1995, Jason has hands-on experience with how threats affect our day to day operations. Staying ahead of those threats and constant industry changes is Jason's goal.
