Life Safety Protection

Lima 5’s Tactical Security Officer (TSO) is responsible for the first-response protection of other human beings under his or her watch, regardless of the level of risk. Although posted at a security gate, in a school reception lobby or in a roving patrol vehicle, the protection responsibility of a Lima 5 TSO evolves quickly with the radio dispatch to a suspected heart
attack of a resident, a chain saw an accident involving a service landscaper, an active shooter in a 5th grade classroom or hospital emergency room. The best law enforcement response in the United States is now averaging 7 to 12 minutes for a Priority 1 response.

Active Violence and aggravated felony crime events are typically over in less than 3 minutes. Life safety protection relies on today’s professional security officer more often than not in a first response scenario. The Lima 5 TSO is charged with responding to the crisis by providing for the immediate safety of those in need while tailoring and implementing a security response that fits the client’s expectations. This tactical first response requires utilizing all available
resources and simultaneously coordinating a Law Enforcement and Fire/Rescue response.


Our personal strategy is to hire combat trained military veterans, active or retired Law Enforcement and Fire/Rescue veterans and, recent graduates of Law Enforcement and Paramedic academies. We provide our TSOs with specific training in command center observation and dispatch, security tactical response, lock and hold tactics to observe and report specific threats and, the effective transition to larger tactical response units (SWAT, Police and Fire/Rescue). Effective early warning capabilities at the perimeter of a community or facility put the Lima 5 TSO in an active tactical response position three to seven minutes ahead of a Law Enforcement or Paramedic response. Our TSOs must be alert, well-trained and responsive.


Security Officer services by Lima 5 are often coordinated with other elite caliber security firms that specialize in a particular type of protection or guard service, are geographically better located to respond to an immediate client request or can provide a specialized capability in your specific situation. The mission is to protect You and Your people. We will always endeavor to put the best and most capable manpower at your service in any life safety situation whether
it is a Lima 5 TSO, a Torres Protection Group Protection Agent or a Champions National Security Elite Security Officer. Our first mission field is to protect the life safety interests of our clients.

Threat Assessment

A Threat or Vulnerability Assessment is a key component of any successful security plan. The Threat Assessment is designed to anticipate and plan around potential danger and is a requirement for any proactive security plan. Threat assessment involves investigation, intelligence, and counter-intelligence gathering as well as the assessment of known threats. The objective of a Threat Assessment is the development of countermeasures and early warning capabilities to manage potential risk.
