Strike Security and Strike Protection is what Special Solutions has been specializing in for over 25 years.
We have implemented numerous security directives for Employee Strikes and we provide complete protection in the event of a Strike.  







Strike Protection---is our only concern. Our “high visibility, low confrontation” approach to strike security begins the moment your management team, employees and union officials see the Special Solution's name.

Our uniformed strike security officers are predominantly ex-military personnel with extensive experience on the picket line. They undergo specialized training for each deployment. We position our security officers in highly visible locations. And using strategically placed video cameras, we thoroughly document picket line behavior to support any restraining orders, injunctions or NLRB hearings related to the strike. These measures, combined with our thorough understanding of picket line behavior and dynamics, allow us to prevent most problems from ever occurring.

When a strike occurs – whether expected or unexpected – Special Solution's strike security professionals can rapidly respond to secure your facilities, deter strike-related violence and support your continuing operations with:

  1. Picket Line Security - Our highly specialized strike security officers are trained to deter picket misconduct and, when necessary, keep driveways clear using defensive formations.

  2. Property Protection - Designed to help prevent sabotage and/or vandalism to your facility and equipment through high visibility and deterrence.

  3. Mobile Protection - Dedicated to protecting drivers, trucks and other mobile assets by deterring misconduct on the road.

  4. Evidence Collection - Highly specialized officers are trained in investigative and evidence gathering techniques, which include documenting evidence of picket line misconduct for use in injunctions, restraining order hearings or for employee disciplinary purposes.

  5. Command and Control - Experienced site management teams can coordinate every aspect of your strike security operation.

  6. Executive Protection - Our highly trained agents provide low-profile security to company owners, managers and/or family members who may be targeted for harassment during a labor dispute.

Special Solution's highly trained, professional personnel have extensive backgrounds in security, the military and law enforcement. Special Solutions can help design, engineer and implement a client’s security environment – from conception to construction and beyond. For the protection of physical structures, SSI applies its expertise to any domestic or international facility, existing or new, including corporate offices, factories and project sites.


Special Solution's planning, design and structural implementations address multiple levels of protection and opportunities for response. SSL provides objective recommendations that serve the client’s best interests. Key points examined are:

Architectural elements such as barriers, locks, doors and areas of refuge.


Operational measures such as tenant and visitor access control, security staffing, policies and procedures, material handling, deliveries, storage, vehicular and pedestrian access and other building management issues.


Technical security systems such as automated access control, alarm monitoring, closed circuit television, communications, asset tracking and parking controls.






Planning and Design


Whether Special Solutions is working with a new or existing facility, any security program involves examining the architecture to identify and resolve issues. Special Solutions expertly consults with architectural teams as the building is being planned or makes recommendations for the enhancement of existing architectural features.



An inconvenient truth, a probable likelihood and a disconcerting notion.....Let's stop it before it happens! Proactive vs. Reactive..


Workplace Violence Prevention is Smart Business: Are you prepared?  

Workplace terminations are never pleasant and can be dangerous if there is any suspicion that terminated employees may react violently.  Human resource and personnel managers should be aware of this possibility and rely on their previous experiences with employees to make security conscious judgments regarding high risk terminations. The liability factory is also prevalent when employee safety is at risk as well.  An affirmative defense is paramount in cases involving terminated violent employees and hiring the proper protective services firm is intrinsic.

Special Solutions can help you take proper steps to minimize the danger to yourself or other employees through workplace violence prevention planning and provide an on-site presence during and after the termination.  Prior to the termination, SSL security professionals are available to consult with you to assist with the termination process, to coordinate your corporate security department, or involve local law enforcement if needed.

In cases where threats of violence have been made by employees who are being terminated, a thorough investigation should be conducted and action plans established in the event of problems. In more than 90% of workplace violence incidents perpetrators have told acquaintances that he or she would commit the act before it happened.

Special Solutions also provides training to assist management to recognize, evaluate and implement action plans for workplace violence prevention.
