Company Overview

Overview

Adirondacks Protection Services was founded by a former law enforcement officer who migrated from Guyana St. Lucia to the United States of America in February 2002 and started his employment career as a regular security guard in a downtown Brooklyn store in bed Stuyvesant.

The company is privately owned and managed by experienced office support staff who previously served in various positions at various private contract security companies in the Tri-State region.

The company is licensed, bonded, and insured in the State of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The company is committed to providing professional security services to its clients and strives to maintain a good long term partnership with them.

The company is relatively small in comparison to the National Security Companies operating in the Tri-State area. Still, its size does not diminish its performances and capabilities to function like any other national security company in the Tri-State area. Instead, its size provides a noticeable and distinct advantage to allow its clients easy access to communicate directly with its experienced management team regularly concerning any unprecedented issues.
