1. We have NEVER missed a payroll or had a paycheck returned “NSF” in our company’s history. Can other local security companies make this same claim?
2. We have a legitimate payroll and withhold all federal and state taxes due. We are always current in this obligation on our employees behalf. Any security employer paying “under the table” is abusing its’ employees and breaking the law….Don’t fall for this. YOU are the victim!
3. We are properly registered, licensed, insured, and follow all local, state and federal employment laws. Can other local security companies prove this?
4. We are the largest regional provider of security services, with over 30 certified officers and a successful 29-year track record of success. No other local company has this longevity in Central Oregon.
5. We have the largest mobile patrol team with eleven company vehicles, 40 hours of combined non-stop coverage every night, and we project the most visibly effective security presence in Bend.
6. Our officers have received awards from the City of Bend Police Department for performing above the call in the interest of public safety.
7. We have created a strong company culture of professionalism, honesty, service, reliability and accountability, while also having fun in our work.

13. We drug test, no exceptions.
14. We have the best electronic accountability system which provides proof of the work we’re doing for clients. While others can prove that they drove-by, we can prove that we stopped, got out of the car and physically inspected all checkpoints.
15. We actually do what we say we are going to do and hold everyone accountable.
16. We are properly licensed and certified by the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) and follow all laws, orders and rules of this regulatory body. Can other local security companies stand on this same record?

19. We offer Holiday Pay to everyone working ten Holidays per year.
20. We appreciate and value our employees more. Our officers are the visible appearance and reputation of our company.
21. We offer the largest variety of security work due to our large client base.
22. We work together as a team to serve our clients. In helping others to succeed, we ensure our own success.
23. We have the best relationship with law enforcement in this region because we DO NOT try to impersonate the police in our vehicle look/presentation, uniform colors, officer badge design or our actions on the job. Those who do this only irritate law enforcement and establish a hostile relationship with them. They claim to have a “Higher Command Presence“, and have special “Arrest Authority“, but really do not, because security officers are not the police. Due to specific abuses, the City of Bend has enacted a City Ordinance to prevent security companies from looking too similar to the Bend Police Department (5.40.050 Misrepresentation of City of Bend Affiliation). We are (and always have been) in compliance with all aspects of this new city law.
24. We are the “greenest” security services provider by driving the most fuel efficient patrol fleet. Our Honda’s average 30+ miles per gallon of fuel. We are the first security company in Central Oregon to have TWO road legal electric low-speed-vehicles and the only All-Wheel-Drive vehicles for all-season performance.
25. Our sporty Honda HR-V patrol fleet is the most visible, coolest looking, and best equipped/maintained security vehicles on the road. We actually have our own in-house full automotive shop, including a certified mechanic, to maintain our vehicles!
