Reliance Security has set the standard for the industry by designing and implementing superior, comprehensive, and cost-effective public safety programs for dynamic and complex environments. Our business philosophy stresses being the best, not necessarily the biggest service provider. Our goal is to stay in a close contact with our clients so that we can remain responsive to their needs.

No matter what your needs, a single-post or multi-location operations, residential, commercial, retail, industrial, certified armed or unarmed, mobile patrols or alarm response, short-term or long-term services, when you deal with Reliance Security, you get a winning hand every time.

If you need a new security program developed or if you feel that, your existing security program could/should perform better and needs to improve, please give us an opportunity to either create a new security program or improve your existing security program. Reliance Security also provides off duty Police Officers, if needed.

What sets us apart from other agencies? Security is defined as “The Quality or State of being secure, freedom from danger or loss.” Danger can include fire, natural disaster, criminal activity, or other unforeseen threats.  Loss can mean anything from loss of property to loss of life. Since the word “Security” means so much, wouldn’t you expect more than just a guard?

If you feel that your current security program needs improvement, please allow us the opportunity to conduct a complementary security survey for you. The survey will allow us to provide you with an expert analysis of your property’s safety and security program. Our experienced professionals will evaluate your current program and provide recommendations. Furthermore, if you need a new program, we can develop an integrated plan to cover your needs. 

After the survey, our clients have a far greater understanding of their security vulnerabilities. We carefully analyze all areas of the property working inward from the property’s perimeter line to the interior of each building, then to the high security areas. We analyze current security measures to determine their adequacy in deterring or preventing crime and unauthorized access. Our focus is to provide you with recommendations that fit within your budget. 

Whatever your security needs are single-post or multi-location operations, we can tailor a program to fit your needs and enhance the level of safety and security. We recognize the unique requirements of your property and prepare them to provide you with the quality security services. 

At Reliance, you get a “Security program” and not just a “Guard.” We pledge all our company’s resources toward the successful operation and protection of you and your property.

The goal of security survey is to assess client’s existing security situation and recommending positive change. Change is not inevitable; some conditions may not, in our opinion, warrant change. However, typically, some modifications to the existing company’s strategy or program may be required. Recommendation of changes will be based on my evaluation of existing conditions.      

The Reliance Security Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Survey focuses on four component parts of a security program. The sum this four components part equals the security program:

  1. Policy
  2. Procedure                                                                        = Protection Program
  3. Physical Plant/Equipment/Hardware                                   
  4. Personnel

Problems in the security program must exist within one or more of the component parts:

  1. Policy Failure
  2. Procedure Failure
  3. Physical Plant/Equipment/Hardware Program Failure             = Program Problems
  4. Personnel Failure
