Pinnacle Security Officers Respond to Bourbon St. Shooting

We would like to commend the actions of three of our armed security officers that were working on Bourbon St. during the double shooting last night. The shooting took place while one of the officers was conducting a client escort for an employee of one of the locations we are currently servicing. The gunshots rang out just feet away from the officer and the client. The officer was able to safely escort the client into a doorway and behind cover. Knowing that one of their coworkers was conducting the escort in the area, the other two officers immediately responded as the shots were still being fired. All three Pinnacle Security Officers were the first to arrive and immediately began to secure the scene. One of the officers also rendered aid to the victim. The officers obtained a description of the perpetrator and dialed 911.

Pinnacle Officers were able to secure the scene until NOPD officers arrived just minutes later and took control. We would also like to recognize the NOPD 8th District Officers for their immediate response, especially given the fact it was a busy Saturday night.

The teamwork these officers displayed during their response was a text book example of trained officers taking action and not just standing by. This incident displayed the benefits of having experienced former law enforcement officers working in the role of armed security and how it can increase the value of any security plan. This is another example of the successes that our experienced officers are seeing in our security operations throughout New Orleans.

Pinnacle Security Officers See Success in Crime Prevention and Security for New Orleans Clients

Our clients are seeing the benefits of a security plan that includes experienced law enforcement professionals providing armed security services. Pinnacle Security Officers have seen great success in crime prevention and overall security for our clients in recent weeks. Our officers working security for several Bourbon Street businesses have intercepted 2 simple robberies, preventing one from occurring and making an arrest and detention in another. Both incidents resulted in the victim’s property being returned and two less crimes that NOPD Eighth District Officers had to investigate. One of our officers working a multi-family housing community in New Orleans East intervened in what may have been an armed robbery in progress, after he encountered an armed suspect pointing a firearm at the victim. The officer took the appropriate action and prevented the incident from escalating further, when he attempted to detain the gunman and pursued him when he fled.

Our officers, and their experience, are what separates us from the pack and brings tremendous value to the security plan for our clients. We would like to congratulate our hard working officers and commend them for their dedication to duty.

Pinnacle Security Officers to Provide Armed Security Services for Bourbon St. Businesses

Pinnacle Security and Investigation Inc. has partnered with the Deja Vu Consulting management company, to provide armed security services to three of their establishments along New Orleans’ most iconic street.  Pinnacle Security Officers will begin providing armed security services outside three establishments on Bourbon Street.  The officers will ensure the safety and security of company employees, customers, and visitors passing through the area.  A large part of this security plan includes Pinnacle Security Officers providing personal security services for employees leaving work and walking to their vehicles.  With the increase in crimes, including armed robberies and assaults, this move places the Deja Vu management team as leaders in change towards the safety and security of their employees and patrons.

In keeping with Pinnacle’s core operations, all of the officers working this security detail will be experienced, trained, and POST Certified Law Enforcement officers who are licensed by the Louisiana State Security Board and the New Orleans Police Department’s Special Officer’s Division.  Employees, customers, and visitors to the area will notice the increase in uniformed security outside these establishments.  We will continue to work with other establishments along Bourbon Street and throughout the French Quarter to increase the uniformed presence in the area and assist the NOPD in returning that sense of security locals and visitors deserve.

Securing New Orleans in 2015

As we close out 2014, New Orleans has made great strides this year.  But, there is one concern that is on the mind of every New Orleans resident and visitor.  Crime and Safety is a major concern for everyone, as we have seen increases in violent crime (including robberies) throughout the city.  There may be no place that this crime has been more evident than in the city’s crown jewel, the French Quarter.  It seems as though these crimes grew more brazen as the year went on.  So now, we are poised with finding a solution… We need to stop talking about the problem (we all know what the problem is) and we need to start talking about solutions…  Solutions that are viable, attainable, and will be effective.  What is being done is not working.

You see, most of these crimes are crimes of opportunity.  A criminal is looking for an easy target and does not want to put themselves in a position where they may be caught.  They know that the NOPD has lost over 33% of their manpower.  That translates to 33% less uniformed officers patrolling the neighborhoods in which these crimes occur.  We all want more police officers, that goes without saying.  We all support the NOPD as well, as they are doing the best that they can, with what they have.  The problem is that there are not enough of them.  We can all demand more police officers, as we should, but the reality is even with normal attrition, it will take 10-15 years to start making a net gain in officers (that’s just the reality).  So what is the answer???

Well, here at Pinnacle Security and Investigation we have solutions.  We have an effective plan that can attain results.  We are a company that is owned and operated by former Law Enforcement Professionals, and employ former and retired Law Enforcement Officers that provide armed security services throughout New Orleans.  Our officers are not traditional security guards, they are Law Enforcement professionals who are now serving as Security Officers.  This experience translates into decreases in crime, and increases in safety and quality of life for our clients.  Remember what I previously stated about these being crimes of opportunity…. Well adding our Security Officers to provide vehicle and foot patrols in your neighborhood increases the uniformed presence to deter these crimes from occurring.  Oh and did I mention that they do have arrest powers… That’s right, every one of our officers is commissioned through the NOPD Special Officers Division, which authorizes them to make both felony and misdemeanor arrests while they are on duty.  They not only have the ability to detain and make the arrest, but they have the experience to do so safely and effectively.  Now that is added value!!  So I ask.. Would you like to see a group of armed Pinnacle Security Officers (who are former law enforcement officers) patrolling your neighborhood?

Everyone keeps saying that we need a holistic approach, something that maximizes all the available resources.  Here at Pinnacle Security and Investigation, we are adding experienced officers to those available resources and are ready to assist.  As we look forward to 2015, and seek solutions to these issues, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your neighbors to work on real solutions that  transform you into the leaders in change towards the safety and security of your New Orleans neighborhood.

 

Kind Regards,

The Best Plan to Secure the French Quarter

We have all seen the increase in crimes against persons in the French Quarter recently. Innocent people are being attacked in public areas. We also know the unfortunate manpower challenges facing the New Orleans Police Department. These issues bring to light the question, what plan best utilizes resources available to prevent these types of crimes from occurring?

On Wednesday October 15th, Pinnacle Security and Investigation Inc. President Chad Perez was invited to speak in front of the French Quarter Management District (FQMD) regarding security concerns in the French Quarter. Chad presented the FQMD with a comprehensive security plan that utilizes a combination of New Orleans Police Officers and Pinnacle Security Officers.

This plan allows for Pinnacle Security Officers, who are all current or former law enforcement professionals, to conduct foot and vehicle patrols throughout the French Quarter. Pinnacle is able to staff this security detail with as many officers needed to effectively increase the uniformed presence. The plan does not eliminate the need for NOPD detail officers, and actually calls for a collaborative effort between the NOPD and Pinnacle Security Officers. We believe that since our officers are ALL current or former law enforcement professionals, their working relationship with NOPD will only make the plan more effective. The plan also calls for Pinnacle Security Officers to take advantage of arrest powers issued to them by the NOPD Special Officers Division, to assist NOPD Officers in preventing crimes in the area. Our armed security officers have the experience and training to effectively make a difference.

The City of New Orleans has presented a plan to utilize unarmed civilians to assist NOPD with fighting crime. Is this the best use of resources? Will this put citizens and officers at more risk? We believe a group unarmed civilians is not the answer. Putting experienced armed security officers working alongside NOPD Officers makes the best use of resources and adds the most value to any security plan for the French Quarter. If you are a NOPD Officers, which would you choose? If you are citizen, would you rather an unarmed civilian arrive to assist you, or an experienced Pinnacle Security Officer, who has years of law enforcement experience?
