read moreYour officers actions undoubtedly saved a life that evening and are certainly worthy of praise. His quick thinking, willingness to become involved, and support of members of the CHP are sincerely appreciated.

Walker Woolever
read moreTo the Chief of Police Santa CruzYour action to patrol the Harvey West Park has had a very positive effect on for all of us who live and work in that section of Santa Cruz. Not only are the undesirables keeping a lower profile, the drug activity seems to be obvious. The area in general is much cleaner, les debris and trash along the RR tracks and in and around the streets.

You would be hard pressed to find another company that rivals FSS security guards in their service and professionalism. Actually we were in need of a security guard firm who can manage my restaurant and its parking and found these guys online, so decided to go with them and want to mention that they did not disappoint me and I highly recommend them to any one looking at a security firm. Two thumbs up!

These guys are awesome
My security guard was awake at 3am when a thief broke into our house, he responded very quickly and charged the thief but unfortunately the thief escaped, but I want to salute my security guard on his wonderful work that he showed last night. Thanks First Security, now that the thief is aware of the guard he wont repeat this act again.

Fast and responsive
I thought First Security Service was very professional I called them to come service one of my cocoa beach communities and they were available to start right away. The management there is fast and responsive and what they guarantee you, you get immediately. Probably would say the most professional security I have seen in a very long time. So far as long as I have used them, their reports have been very accurate and they have made my community very safe. Thank you First Security Service.

Awesome Service
I've been really happy with First Security services for the past year. The guards are always professional and on time. If I have ever had an issue or a last minute request, I can literally call at any time of the night or day and receive excellent customer service. Recently I had a sudden issue come up and they had guards sent within 15 mins after placing a call to an account exec. It's safe to say I am extremely pleased with my relationship with FSS and recommend them to everyone.
