Why CTI?

The right kind of expertise to meet your needs

CTI has extensive and comprehensive knowledge and experience in all areas of security, including vulnerability assessments, training, counter-terrorism support, design of security systems, and emergency plan development.  Our experience, professionalism and dedication to customer service is evident by the many satisfied clients we've serviced over the last four decades.

Independent and objective consulting services

CTI does not represent any security equipment or products, nor do we have any alliances with manufacturers or vendors offering products or services. This ensures our objectivity and assures that our only goals are total client satisfaction and the successful completion of all project tasks.

Certified DBE in multiple jurisdictions

CTI's status as a woman-owned and minority owned corporation enables us to meet any project DBE percentage requirements. We can serve as the minority component or as the Prime Contractor - either way, our participation will strengthen any team and our status will ensure that any project DBE goals are met or exceeded. CTI is certified as a DBE in many locations across the country and we are in the process of becoming certified in many more.
