About Ron Navarreta
Ron Navarreta is a security and crime expert with almost 30 years of experience in the industry. He holds a Bachelor’s degree, as well as a Master’s in Corporate Security Management. Prior to working in the private security industry, Ron spent the majority of his career in law enforcement. As a young boy, he’d always dreamt of a career in the field, as offices and the traditional 9 to 5 never appealed to him.
When his dreams became a reality, Ron relished in the thought that he was a part of something bigger—an entity whose sole purpose is to give people a sense of security. Always a people-person, he loved constantly being around others and the dynamic nature of teamwork. After decades in law enforcement, Ron decided it was time for a change.
In 2015, Ron Navarreta joined the private sector and began his career in private security, working as a consultant, leading security teams, conducting security assessments, and managing client relationships. Ron soon realized that the teamwork component inherent in law enforcement precincts was also present in private sector security, so he found the transition easy.
Ron also found his career transition rewarding. Unfortunately, the current state of the world demands that critical infrastructure, private business, and the people within these institutions must be—and feel—protected. The perceived absence of security can demoralize individuals to the point that it harms productivity. Unplanned time off caused by fear and feelings of being unappreciated can be toxic to operations. Fortunately, a robust corporate security plan can mitigate such a negative impact, which Ron finds immensely rewarding as a security professional.
The modern world is full of threats and many of them can be found hiding in the corporate world. From workplace violence, natural and man-caused disasters, and technological breaches, private security offers companies both preventative solutions and retroactive plans in the event of a security issue. Instructing organizations on how to mitigate workplace violence is one of the many responsibilities Ron enjoys as a corporate security expert. Ron Navarreta loves how his career has helped others find ways to keep themselves safe and, in turn, keep those around them safe, as well.
Most recently, Ron Navarreta earned his CPD. In the physical security world, CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) is and has been an extremely useful tool. The CPTED principals are used by and codified by many local, state, and federal entities. Moreover, those who are certified (referred to as CPD (or CPTED Practitioner Designation) are highly respected in the physical security word. CPTED contends that perceived safety in a community can be created by designing a physical environment that influences positive human behavior. Ron continues to build his skills in security and crime prevention to better serve others and make the world a safer place.
When Ron isn’t working he can be found spending quality time with his lovely wife and their French Bulldog, Milo. The couple loves to host barbeques and entertain friends and family. Ron is also an avid reader, preferring nonfiction books that help him learn more about himself and how to communicate and work with others. He believes that being a lifelong student, always willing to learn and grow, has been the key to keeping him sharp and aware within his industry.
