Safeguarding the Revolution

With the increase of state-sponsored marijuana programs, it has become clear: the industry is experiencing massive growth. In a short time, states such as PA have watched their newly-launched medical marijuana program rapidly expand; with sales exceeding $132 Million in the first year (2017-2018.) Accordingly, the cannabis security industry is also growing, giving licensed facilities an wide range of choices when it comes to their security needs.

With ever-rising sales projections of the cash-based marijuana industry, both minor and major incidents are becoming an increasing security concern. This article by the Los Angeles Daily News examines many reasons why marijuana industry owners and operators should take their safety and security seriously.

If you are serious about safeguarding your employees, patients, and assets; our market-specific and All-Hazards approaches place a focus on prevention by design – identifying and deterring potential problems before they begin. As the market continues to grow, we look forward to continued long-term partnerships; and protecting an industry responsible for improving the lives of so many in our communities.

Late afternoon Friday March 9, 2018, my vehicle broke down on N. Cameron St. Harrisburg, PA. Due to an officer of TSE District II Harrisburg, PA., assistance, effort and time. I was able to get myself and disabled vehicle successfully to and in a reasonable amount of time, home to Chambersburg, PA. This officer’s action is a reflection of a very superior organization. Thank you.

TSE is a great agency and we love having them at our shop. They are very professional and always take their job seriously but also know how to relate and assist us with other various task or even help patients when they have questions or concerns about the laws and regulations. We feel very safe knowing we have them as our officers in case of an emergency or in the event of a threat. We have already had a couple of incidents where they were able to tell what had happened when we had some suspicious activity, as well as stop a few suspicious people from entering or coming back to our shop. It has been a pleasure having TSE as our officers and look forward to the continuing great work they do and provide us on a daily basis!

Fantastic. Great folks and great attention to detail. I can honestly say the whole staff and myself feel better knowing we can depend on these officers. Great with any issues and incredible with non staff members. Any place that needs security could only benefit from this company. Quality people.

Since we received a security guard assigned to our pharmacy our feelings of being safe have increased dramatically. Our customers are generally a lot nicer and we all feel very safe. Before we had a guard I had difficulties focussing on my work due to the fact that I was constantly surveying the area and preparing for the worst. I highly recommend this company as their officers are highly trained and professional. Satisfaction guaranteed.

The officers presence in the pharmacy certainly has helped my anxiety. I am able to focus on my tasks and not worry if we are being robbed. Our customers have also taken a liking to him.

We have recently had a lot of armed robberies in our store. Our owners have had two of the officer's in our stores for the last couple of months. It is reassuring to have them in the stores keeping us safe. They are also very friendly with the customers. As we are a local owned small business that's huge in our community!

I have had the pleasure to work with TSE for one year. TSE is always pleasant and helpful with MMJ patients and employees. In my 22+ years of Retail Pharmacy experience, TSE is the most Professional Security company when compared to their competitors. I feel that the MMJ patients' and employees' safety is of the utmost importance to these professionals.

TSE provided security for Hangar Jam Live at the Capital City Airport. They were professional, courteous and everything I expected from their services. Not only did we enjoy having TSE staff at the event but they also helped guide us along the way to ensure proper security. They went above and beyond and I will certainly be using them again. Cheers!

I've worked with TSE for the past year in the PA MMJ Industry and without any doubt at all, my TSE Officer (as well as other officers that worked with us) were ALWAYS top notch, professional and 150% on top of everything. We felt much safer knowing our TSE Officer was always watching over us and the patients from our dispensary. I/we HIGHLY recommend Tri State Enforcement!!!
