About us

Shield Security

 Shield Security has been operating since 1993. We are located at 256 Nokomis Avenue South, Suite #5 in Venice, Florida. This location centralizes our efforts to serve our Clients from Tampa to Fort Myers. We know our territory, which helps us identify our Clients individual needs and provide them with PERSONALIZED service.

Private security is one of the fastest growing industries in America. Unfortunately, Law Enforcement is simply too understaffed and overwhelmed to provide the personal level of protection our Clients deserve. More often than not a problem occurs and Law Enforcement is only there after the fact to file a report. Your property is still damaged costing you money and time. Shield Security can fill that need to protect your property and save you money and valuable time.

We provide 24 hour protection if necessary. When one considers the billons of dollars per year lost to theft, vandalism and down time, private security provides a cost-effective service to protect your property.

Shield Security utilizes an automated tour tracking system at any Clients request. This system tracks the Officers movements and patrols with time and location stamps throughout the property and records them for future reference. Shield Security provides these reports to each Client to review. Our Clients know they are getting what they pay for. Shield Security is the only security company in the area that offers this system up-front.

Shield Security does not rely on answering services or paging systems. Any Client or Officer can speak directly with a member of Shield Security management 24 hours a day 7 days per week. If there is a problem, an Officer or Client should not have to wait for a response from their security company.

Shield Security provides all Clients with certificates of insurances. All Officers are licensed and background checked by the State of Florida.
