Research and Consulting Heritage
Robert M. Figlio, Ph. D., then a University of Pennsylvania criminologist, and Steven K. Aurand, a statistician,
founded CAP Index in 1988. While conducting research in support of proposed legislation
for the petroleum industry, Figlio and Aurand developed analytical tools substantiating
the commonly accepted premise that the likelihood of crime to occur at a property
can be predicted as a function of the community’s “social disorganization.”
Their research led them to create and extensively validate the CRIMECAST Model that
is now the foundation for CAP Index’s risk and vulnerability assessments.
CAP’s President and COO,
Jon D. Groussman, J. D., possesses a unique combination of practical security
management experience and extensive knowledge in premises security liability. These
skills assist CAP in creating objective analytical research that is grounded in
operational reality for the benefit of our clients.
