Changing the Perception
Of Security

When we hear the term 'security guard' we tend to conjur up images of Paul Blart Mall Cop or maybe one that suddenly breaks into some dance moves at your local sporting event. Most people think of donuts and extended naps. Either way we treat security different than any stereotype you might be able to think of. Our uniformed security personnel are:

  • Toughly background and vetted. BSIS & PILB compliance is necessary.
  • Trained to anticipate issues that may occur
  • Paid well to attract only the best and brightest talent available

These are questions we get asked a lot and thought it might be helpful to post them here.

Do Your Security Guards Carry Weapons?

This will completely depend on the situation at hand. Some clients require a higher level of security that might require weapons, however in some cases self-defense skills would be more appropriate.

Do You Do Background Checks?

This is one of our most common requested services and because of that we are very skilled in this area. We have the necessary tools to give you a very clear and actionable picture on who you might be bringing in to your family or workplace.

Can I Perform My Own Investigation?

You can certainly find a lot these days via Google and social media networks but in our experience that what you might be looking for is hiding deeper under the surface and requires expertise and access far beyond the normal consumer.

Are You Licensed?

Absolutely! We are licensed in both security and private investigation in California & Nevada for security. California Investigators License California Private Patrol Operator License Nevada Private Patrol Operator License CA PI #22829 • CA PPO #119716 • NV PPO #2001B
