Going back to the mid 1900’s, peacekeeping has been proven to be one of the most effective solutions to prevent and mitigate conflict, crime, and terror. There are many areas of work that maintain peace, reduce violence and help create peaceful progress. Today, peacekeeping services are frequently sought after for hostile employee terminations, domestic violence standby’s, exchange of property, child custody exchanges, gang violence prevention and intervention, nonviolent conflict resolution and mediation, and more.

Having a vetted, authorized, well trained, and highly qualified third party, who can ensure and maintain peace between opposing parties, cannot be undervalued. TSE officers often perform peacekeeping functions for parties who are, were, or could become adversarial. In some cases, parties have court orders in place, which must be adhered to and followed – which can be handled and satisfied by officers performing peacekeeping tasks. In the event that keeping the peace becomes impossible, TSE officers can take a variety of actions to either regain compliance, or facilitate civil or criminal remedies against any party refusing to cooperate.

In addition to the former examples, peacekeeping has many more functions today, which support order and tranquility within our communities. Tasks are frequently undertaken to maintain peace and security, maintain or restore the rule of law, ensure fair political processes and elections, and protecting the rights of at-risk segments of our society. These proven solutions are performed on a local scale, in coordination with municipalities, housing and educational organizations, and nonprofits throughout the greater Lancaster area.

Recent Feedback: TSE Lancaster

I've been working in the motion picture industry for nearly 15 years, and of all the off duty police officers and security officers I've seen on our sets, the officers from TSE were by far the most professional and easy to get along with. This was also the first time we made it through an entire segment/set without any issues at all. It was nice for a change to see professionals that were so fantastically different than everyone else.

I recently had a pleasant interaction with one of these officers (maybe supervisor) getting a coffee at the Sunoco on Orange Street downtown. Very quick to correct me that he was not Lancaster City, and answer the questions I had about what they did. Thank you guys for helping the businesses and people of Lancaster stay safe and making a positive impact. Be safe out there!!

I recently retained Tri State Enforcement Lancaster for a lengthy personal security detail for our family during a rather challenging time. Not only were these professionals very knowledgable and copassionate from the very first call I made to them, but it was apparent they were very prepared and capable of handling virtually anything. The support by their investigators, analysists, and others who worked behind the scenes really was far more than anything I would have expected. I would recommend this organization to anyone needing highly professional security services.

Apparently they've been around for a few years, but I only learned of them a few weeks ago when I was trying to find security for an event and I couldn't get the constables we normally use. I guess it was meant to be, because I'll never use constables or anyone other than TSE ever again. They're truly first class.

The officers who patrol at the townhouses I just moved to are very kind and professional. I feel very safe having them around, and they've even unlocked my car for me twice now when I've locked my keys inside.

Lancaster city officials have really screwed up the police department, which led me to look for security. No shortage of options, but most vendors around Lancaster are the typical mall cop variety of security guard companies. Tri State Enforcement Regional Authority is quite different, and we're happy we found them. They have been nothing short of amazing, and really go above and beyond every day. I don't know why they aren't prominently known, but they're really top notch professionals.

They are pretty professional and chill, but you can look at them and tell they don't play. I guess if you're gonna have security, might as well get the best and most effective - there was nobody acting stupid around them. Pretty rare for Lancaster city.

I'm not sure if they're security or police, but either way these are the kindest and most professional officers I've ever encountered. Wish they were all like this.

As a former LEO, I know the importance of security and protection with high-profile clients and guests. TSE exceeds standards 100% of the time. I have used them for executive protective detail and for private parties. 2 thumbs up for TSE.

Occasionally have the privilege of working with Ed Blake as my guard for ATM repairs and he has conducted himself professionally at all times and takes his position seriously. He communicates well with all of the local techs as to meeting times and places.
