Public Safety

As one of the top public safety consultants in the Midwest, RQAW and its CPTED-certified staff have designed more than 150 public safety facilities, creating many innovations that have become the gold standard in jails, fire and police stations, and other public safety facilities.

Our changing world and ever-growing security concerns have made RQAW’s expertise even more critically important. Our depth of experience has enhanced security design in fire stations, police stations, jails, military facilities, and public safety answering points (PSAPs) in numerous cities throughout the country, while our leading-edge expertise has led us to provide homeland security and anti-terrorism security consulting on a national level. Schools and college campuses have also utilized RQAW to address security issues within a wide variety of educational facilities.

RQAW’s work has garnered awards for excellence in design from both the ACEC and American Institute of Architects. And RQAW’s public safety innovations continue to lead the industry in facility security design, functionality and cost-efficiency, as evidenced by the high percentage of clients who repeatedly turn to us for their public safety project needs.
