Sharon | Personal Safety at Work

Account Executive

From my teen years on horseback in rural America to being a Retail Clothing Buyer braving the streets of New York City, I have experienced safety extremes.  I learned to be aware of threats ranging from rattlesnakes in the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania to thugs prowling the dangerous streets of New York City in the 1980s.  I was fortunate to have a boss that taught me how to walk those dangerous New York City streets safely and now it is the way Jerry shares similar learnings and strategies with our clients that excites me about our company.

I met Jerry in 2009 while a member of our local police support organization (CAP).  He was presenting an overview of personal and home safety subjects and I was most impressed by his knowledge, style and ability to hold my attention.  Inspired by my activity with CAP, I went on to create a Community Watch group for our 2,000-home neighborhood as well as a Garden Club and Yoga group.  Captain McCormick was our highly engaged regional commander who always drew a crowd when he spoke for us.

In addition to my Buying experience, I worked in accounting functions and volunteered, holding Treasurer roles, for a number of PTA organizations while raising my two sons.  One is now a Graphic Designer for a major automotive company and the other is a Police Officer at a nearby town.

I am still an active member of the Raleigh Garden Club, elected to the Treasurer position for two terms.  I love time in my garden.  As there are always plants to be purchased and holes to be dug, I have no spare time!

Meet Beverly

Beverly | Personal Safety at Work

Crime Analyst

I’m Beverly and I am a Certified Crime and Intelligence Analyst. In 2021, after spending over 20 years as a civilian in Law Enforcement, I decided to retire. In my career, I have worked with many fine, dedicated law enforcement personnel in Ohio and North Carolina. As a Crime Analyst, I provided information that was timely, actionable and accurate to police officers and citizens alike. Although, I was honored to provide information to police, I  thoroughly enjoyed working directly with citizens and community watch groups who took an active role in their community.

There is an abundance of data collected by law enforcement, when easily understood, can help you make informed decisions regarding your personal safety. It can also help you to understand how and why law enforcement officers take certain measures to keep you safe. This partnership between you and the police, can help you become the eyes and ears of your neighborhood, workplace and community.

Much of the data collected is protected, but police departments nationwide make crime data readily available. However, it may come in a form that is not easily understood. This is where I come in. I can assist you by navigating through rows of data and provide answers to questions like who, what, when, where, why and how.

Sir Robert Peel, the father of modern policing stated, “The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

I look forward to working with you and becoming your crime analyst. Together, we can make a difference.
