We are proud of our roots and long tradition of excellent service. Our reputation is built by keeping one principle in mind: the most important component of security is the human element.

We hold a stable growth position in the industry and are well established in the private sector. In the 1990’s, we have grown to provide security services to the U.S. government user agencies. We provide guards to assist in maintaining the physical security of federal buildings, facilities, research and technological centers, and military installations.

Our strength lies in operations, servicing, and security management. We are committed to further develop our strengths to efficiently manage the design, development, and delivery of security services.

We are part of the Better Business Bureau. Members of ASIS, ASSIST, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, LEAPS.

In 2012 and 2013, we were featured in Hispanic Business Top 500
