Our mission is to be the elite public safety auditing and consulting firm in the world. Our abiding purpose entails core services facilitated by auditing professionals dedicated to enhancing the professionalism, efficiency, and effectiveness of public organizations, wherein the core services produce a reduction in liability through risk assessment, audits & inspections, training, policy review, and best practices.
We at epac believe in taking proactive measures in assessing risk within an organization, so as to reduce exposure of liability that may lead to large settlements, negative media attention, discipline, and or criminal prosecution of personnel, all of which ultimately result in loss of the public trust. Our philosophy lies in adding public value to organizations, and taking into consideration the various stakeholders that are an inherent part of public service. We believe in ensuring organizations are alert to their democratic responsibility towards transparency and accountability.
LAW ENFORCEMENT RISK MANAGEMENT
Risk assessments of law enforcement agencies determine gaps in liability exposure. The assessment process would involve a review of the agencies' policies, procedures, and training related to the high risk critical tasks in law enforcement, as well as an on-site review of agency operations. We would provide expert assistance through recommendations in order to assist the agency in reducing liability exposure.
PUBLIC SAFETY REFORM
Managing public risk is often the responsibility of local elected officials and department heads. Unlike the private industry, very few government entities have the benefit of a qualified, full time risk manager. When allegations arise detailing a citizen's loss of property or life, questions will center on policy, procedures, employee training, and management controls. An allegation of a civil rights violation initiates a question... are officials deliberately indifferent to the public need? The appropriate time to address this question is before an incident takes place.
EPAC consultants have experience in working within the parameters of federal consent decrees. Whether by identifying a team to perform the duties of a monitor or to serve as technical advisors-EPAC can help your organization successfully meet the performance goals and legal requirements set out in court approved settlements or determined through litigation. We will work with you at every step in the process to meet the necessary timelines for the design and completion of reliable audits and assist in policy and training reviews. Our published reports are tailored to track and document the specific progress made in reaching full compliance.
