CRA…over 30 years of experience
in risk and threat management
Today’s risk environment is comprised of a diverse mix of threats and hazards including terrorism, active shooters, natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and pandemics. As a leading provider of homeland security and emergency preparedness services, CRA’s core business areas have evolved to address the ever-changing threat landscape. Examples of our areas of expertise and the markets we serve/have served are provided below:
The frequency of active shooter incidents in the U.S. has tripled since 2009, and the number of victims killed in active shooter incidents has also increased nearly 150 percent in the last four years. Recent examples are abundant. From the Century 21 Movie Theater in Aurora, Colorado; to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut; and the Navy Yard in Washington, DC; active shooter events are proving to be an ever-present threat requiring constant review and improvement of prevention, protection, and response plans, polices, and procedures.
CRA has assisted the many private sector entities with a comprehensive understanding of cyber threats and the need to sustain a workforce that is ready for such a threat. Some of the tools/services include: Cyber Security Strategy And Planning Cyber Security Toolkits Cyber Workforce Workplace and Workforce Assessments
As national models to combat crime and terrorism continue to evolve, CRA’s support to law enforcement has expanded to currently include the provision of contracted criminal analysts, watch analysts, crime scene investigation (CSI) experts, and ballistics experts. Our full-time law enforcement staff of experts work side by side with state and local clients on all aspects of law enforcement. Camden County, New Jersey recently contracted CRA to stand up a new capability that manages the collection, analysis, and sharing of tactical criminal information and intelligence in real-time.
CRA partnered for 11 years with the HQMC Plans, Policies, and Procedures (PP&O) Security Division (PS) to prevent, identify, respond to, and mitigate the continually-changing threats posed to the USMC mission. As part of this contract, CRA provided direct support for the development of a biometrics program, where CRA outlined emerging USMC Identity Operations Strategy 2020 and assisted in the Combat Development and Integration Division the Biometric capabilities.
