What Sets Us Apart

Your family’s safety and your home and business security needs to be simple and secure. Gates Security recruits patrol officers from local police academies and law enforcement agencies; and then provides our new officers an extensive field training program to ensure our high standards of service are provided to each client.

As threat profiles continue to evolve, our integration of technology and manpower to ensure minimal exposure to threats and loss, is a top priority. We monitor these systems at our office and dispatch our own uniformed armed and police academy trained officers in marked patrol cars to deter or stop threats from reaching your home or family 24 hours a day. We bring these assets together to ensure we are “Prepared to Protect.”
