Titan Security Support and Potential Restricted Access to Downtown Chicago – September 17, 2022

In partnership with our cross-sector life-safety organizations, Titan Security is taking the following steps to support our clients and staff members in the wake of activity related to Mexican Independence Day on September 17, 2022 and the proceeding days until further guidance from the city is provided:

  • Notifying our staff members of pending restricted access to areas in Chicago; 
  • Reviewing schedules and transportation requirements; 
  • Updating schedules and adding extra coverage where requested;
  • Providing a letter of authorization to identify staff members as essential workers; 
  • Reinforcing lockdown and civil unrest safety procedures;
  • Monitoring alerts from our public sector partners; 
  • Dispatching field supervisors in marked vehicles to respond to incidents and support our staff members; and
  • Adding resources to our 24/7 Security Operations Center, which is active to take all calls at any time and can be reached at (312) 902-3400.

In addition, Titan’s Managers including Senior Leadership team members are active to support staff and clients.

From the City of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications:

Residents who live or work in the affected area will be allowed access with a driver’s license or work I.D.

Precautions to Take

The Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) reminds private sector firms to ensure their street-facing cameras are in good working order and recording is enabled.

The OEMC Operations Center will be monitoring accordingly. However, because situations develop and change rapidly, additional attention to monitoring news media and other sources for rapidly developing events and updates would be prudent.

Sign Up for Emergency Alert Program for Business

The City of Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) and Office of Emergency Management and Communication (OEMC) has created an emergency alert program specifically for Chicago’s businesses. Local business owners and managers should text “CHIBIZ” to 67283 or visit to opt-in to receive targeted emergency alerts for the business community via CHIBIZ Emergency Alerts. Businesses that opt-in will also be directed to submit a few business-specific details so that BACP and OEMC can send targeted alerts to specific areas of the city as needed.
