Unlike Most Security Service Providers, We’re a Family Business
Creative Security was launched as a family business and remains that way today. Though the business has grown, our family feel remains.
That’s nice for us, but why does it matter for you? Because families are about enduring connections. At the end of a workday, we still have to live with each other. We feel the same way about our customers.
Your Trusted Partner for Security Service
If you’ve ever worked in law enforcement—or know someone who has—you know what a tight-knit community it is. Creative Security is made up of many employees who have been police officers, corrections officers, and members of the military.
There’s an unspoken trust among those who have made it their life’s work to protect others. We know we can count on each other, and we hope that this confidence comes across when you meet us.
If you’ve evaluated other security service providers, you may have been impressed by their capabilities and prices. But we frankly doubt you saw from them the level of experience, teamwork, and dedication you’ll see from us. These are the foundations upon which our business was created and the same reasons our business continues to thrive. Find out why when you call us today.
