GAINESVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the nation responds to the surge in high-threat situations, Florida lawmakers passed a major bill giving approval to arm some school personnel while also increasing budgets for school safety and active-shooter training programs.
“Gone are the days when a lone resource officer or a single seminar will suffice for preventing a dangerous situation before it happens in workplaces and schools,” said Ross Falisi, COO of Vertus, Inc. “In today’s volatile world, it has become necessary for every school district and workplace to have more comprehensive, multi-layer systems for security and preventative action.”
An international provider of high-risk protective services and sophisticated training programs, Vertus’ team is comprised of former special operators, elite military, law enforcement, and intelligence units. They deliver leading programs for fellow military, law enforcement, healthcare facilities, corporations, and educational institutions. Vertus was notably chosen to develop and implement active-shooter training for the US Army MP’s and CID Agents at Ft. Hood following its 2009 massacre. Since then, Vertus’ global clientele has expanded to include workplaces and school districts with an urgent list of security needs under new laws.
Vertus is currently meeting the demand for affordable access to armed-intruder defenses, security evaluations, safety procedures, firearm training and survival training, in addition to providing campus protection officers through its affiliate Regius Investigations and Protective Services.
Falisi added, “In light of new threats and devastating school shootings, Vertus and our affiliate security forces are customizing protective services and survival training programs to ensure the most courageous protocols for shielding our nation’s innocent children.”
