Nationwide, Brookfield Properties manages office space in Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It’s a massive operation that requires a fully integrated technology infrastructure to collect timely safety and security information.
But in 2017, Brookfield’s Washington, D.C. team found itself in a dangerous situation that seemed to be escalating out of control. It was the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump and Washington, D.C. was beset by protests, many of them turning violent.
Brookfield stood up an ad-hoc Security Operations Center (SOC) and deployed LiveSave to its on-duty supervisors and dozens of contract security officers who had never used the system before. Immediately, Brookfield’s deployed security officers were able to report emerging safety and security incidents and direct resources where they were needed.
The volume and pace of the reports enabled Brookfield managers to take proactive measures ahead of protest movements that ultimately prevented property damages to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Listen to LaNile Dalcour, Director of Security, U.S. Office Deivison, Brookfield Properties describe how LiveSafe was used in this episode of the Prevention Podcast.
