If you answer Yes to any of the following 3 questions – you will be interested in learning more about us!

  • Are you in the market for a security company?
  • Do you currently have a private security company that works for you?
  • Do you handle the security of your facility on your own instead of outsourcing?

There are many factors that should go into hiring a private security company, and trust us, many of the firms out there don’t take this part of the job seriously, but you should.

Items your private security company should have checked off on their own before they even get involved with their first security job. Here is a brief list of the main ones that APB is proud to have checked off before we even set foot in your facility or discuss your upcoming event.

Items a private security company should have in place:

  • Are they insured?
  • Do they have Disability Liability?
  • Do they provide Workers Comp to their guards?
  • Are their guards licensed and trained?
  • Are the guards CPR Certified?
  • Are the guards fire trained?
  • Are the guards drug free and tested?
  • Do they have access to enough qualified workers to handle a job even if it’s last minute?

APB can 100% guarantee that all of these items are a YES!

Now we can schedule a FREE Consultation and Quote to talk about your facility’s needs or upcoming event, or whatever your security needs are and you can be sure that all these items are taken care of – now you just need to meet us!
