There's plenty of private contractors that do it. Some places the housing authorities do it. In the back of Firehouse Mag in the classifieds look there to see some of the contractors that do it. One that comes to mind is
1-800-boardup

Can't answer for residential occupancies, but if a business has "plate glass insurance" the carrier almost always provides an "800" number to call in order to get the premises boarded up.   The cost of the board-up is covered by the policy.

It's regular beat cops/rmp's that secure buildings, not ESU.
