About Our Agents

We’re proud to hire highly qualified CCW-licensed armed security guards and security professionals. As you can imagine, we put a lot of time and effort into hiring the right agents for our team.

In the industry of armed security services, your services are only as good as the individuals you hire. When someone becomes an armed security guard, they take the lives and safety of others into their own hands. This is extremely rewarding for the right person, but it’s also a responsibility that our team doesn’t take lightly.

Since our agents have concealed carry licenses, they hold themselves to an even higher standard of responsibility than your average security staff.

While this license gives them the opportunity to keep our customers safe in even the most dire and dangerous circumstances, it also gives them a greater sense of duty to serve with a solid head on their shoulders and collected demeanor.When you entrust our agents with your safety or the safety of your customers as a business, we make sure that we are on the lookout for threats to security while maintaining a high level of professionalism and integrity.

We want to ensure that you and those around you feel completely protected and secure when our agents are around. No matter how large or small your security needs, our agents will work with you to identify potential security concerns and create a plan to tackle them before they become a problem.

While we always hope that our team will not need to use force as a security measure, we know the peace of mind that agents with a CCW license bring to your security concerns.
