Achieving Safety and Security Goals Through Customized Solutions

Since 1985, IEM has worked with and advised government customers in support of safety, security, and the safeguarding and restoration of public order by providing science- and technology-based solutions complemented by real-world experience. Our sound solutions provide government the means to effectively develop, evaluate, and deploy policies and programs in support of their program goals.

IEM was founded on the belief that objective, scientific data is critical to the development of measurable solutions that work. We focus on outcomes—how all the elements of a solution work together, whether it’s a system, technology, or program—to achieve the desired result.
