Officers and staff

Most of our security officers and supervisors are experienced veterans, law enforcement officers and firemen who are highly trained, skilled, and accustomed to rapid response "Decision Making". They have the knowledge and expertise to react and respond appropriately to each individual security alert or situation. 

Our staff is the best qualified and trained which is why we give the Best Service in our community. Our staff is required to attend frequent team meetings and workshops which build strong work relationships and reduce employee turnover. The focus of our meetings and classes are to continually implement "State of The Art" training methods in areas of security, customer service, and safety procedures. 

These sessions are also designed to increase employee pride. At the conclusion of each of these classes our officers experience a heightened awareness of their value and importance to District Security, LLC and our client partners.
