SECURITY GUARD SERVICE – Security you can count on   

Security guardProtective Security, established in 1970, has been providing reliable security guard service to West Central Pennsylvania for over forty years. As the area’s leader in quality security service, we can provide you with trained, uniformed security personnel for your short or long term requirements.


During the hiring process, potential security officers are rigorously screened for experience, ability, reliability, threat-deterrent qualities, and appearance. Background checks are performed through the Pennsylvania State Police criminal database to ensure the highest quality of security guard candidates. 


Our security officers are trained to anticipate potential problems and respond immediately and professionally to all types of emergencies.  With diverse backgrounds of expertise ranging from police to military, our security officers can help prevent physical threats, burglary, vandalism, and employee theft. Officers are regularly evaluated by supervisors who provide constant and ongoing training in security and safety, public relations, as well as laws and judicial codes that directly affect their performance and job duties.


Our security guard supervisors perform random on-site inspections verifying that updated post orders are being followed and making sure that each security officer is a fit for their particular post. We require each security officer to complete a daily two-part log report,  documenting all activity that occurred during his shift. The officer’s supervisor receives one of these reports and the client receives the other copy as a record of any unusual happenings during those hours that a security officer is required.


Protective Security is licensed, insured, and bonded, offering a very diversified range of services. No other security company demands as much from their employees as we do. We strive to set our expectations high because our clients deserve nothing less.  We have the solution that’s right for you.
