Assistance with Daily Operations


The facility Security Manager is a vital employee for your business, and the right one can help you avoid organizational liability and decrease exposure to litigation. In making this choice, please consider a candidate from the 5th Meridian Group.

Our Security Manager candidates have extensive Missouri law enforcement or public safety career backgrounds, often in the region near the facility. The candidates are well versed in state regulations, security audits, contractor vetting, loss prevention tactics, security/surveillance system repair, state reporting requirements, NIH hazard communication programs, and can instruct all required on-boarding and annual employee training. Our Managers can interactively develop a customized and compliant facility security plan, or implement the one submitted as part of your approved application. They can also create operating procedures that will safely guide your team during all phases of operation. The Security Manager will strive to foster an open and collaborative relationship with representatives of local law enforcement and state regulatory inspectors to illustrate compliance and evaluate policy efficacy. Additionally, the Security Manager will implement an internal anti-diversion program, paired with a systematic review of facility surveillance and electronic security data, to assist management’s lead in taking an active stance against product diversion.

If you would like to speak about a Security Manager, that each facility shall employ per state regulations, please call us today.
