Safety is a basic human need, economic recessions are cyclical, and many businesses suffer greatly as spending decreases during these times. As unemployment grows, so does crime. It’s essential that you feel safe and secure both at home and at work. Safety allows one to be productive throughout the day. Our goal is not only to provide peace of mind as well as comfort, but also to increase employment opportunities especially for our veterans. We also want to improve the training opportunities and raise the bar for our security professionals by providing more adequate training and closing the gap between our private security professionals and law enforcement personnel. Our goal here at K1Risk is to increase situational awareness amongst our communities and make them safer by offering various safety classes and providing community awareness programs to the public. It’s a way of giving back to our communities thus it teaches us how significant it is to help the ones in need, the ones who are less fortunate than us. The importance of community service lies in the fact that it connects us to the community by improving it, and making it a better place for all of us to live in.
