2012 Starting off well

Well here we are approaching February and despite a relatively calm month weather wise we’ve been keeping busy!   Our NYC based security guards are working around the clock to secure the site for the upcoming NYC fashion week and we recently wrapped up security services for the 2012 Winter Antique show at the east side Armory.  We had an incident free event working trade show security for The Children’s Club show at The Javit’s Center and worked in conjunction with the NYPD and Secret Service while President Obama was in town.  We’re excited to welcome several newly hired and trained security guards and two former NYPD officers to our executive protection team in NYC.  Look out for a few more blog posts next month and if you have a chance check out our client testimonials, link is above on the right!
