Security Plans

What are License Application Security Plans?

Every cannabis business license application requires that a security plan be included with the application to ensure the security requirements by the city or local law enforcement are followed.  The deliverable is a detailed report that assesses the maturity of the facility’s current physical and procedural security, and recommends or states the projected or implemented security measures and standard operating procedures necessary to satisfy the municipality and/or law enforcement agency overseeing the issuance of cannabis business licenses.

Each license application security plan cites the ordinances and law enforcement requirements for the individual municipality the license has been applied for in and is created by security expert, CEO/President Michael Julian.  Mr. Julian has helped dozens of businesses throughout the U.S. receive approval for their cultivation and/or sales licenses and has had none of his application security plans denied to date.

A successfully implemented license application security plan process provides the necessary emphasis on security policies and procedures during the most important phases of a project –planning, design and license acquisition phases. The assessment process includes, but is not limited to the following:
