For more than 200 years, the Main Street district has played an important and iconic role in the development and identity of our city. Midtown, the Plaza, and the Crossroads are all exciting and dynamic places to work and play, but parts Midtown have also struggled with crime, homelessness, and blight. We're working to change all that!

The security services industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Throughout the Great Recession of 2008 and the Pandemic in 2020, security was one of only a few industries to actually grow. The simple answer to this question depends on the individual. Security isn't for everyone. However, if you have a passion for helping people, you want to work where no two days or the same, and you're looking for a rewarding career with advancement opportunities, you might just love it here!

If you enjoy a challenge, and don't mind getting your hands dirty occasionally, then a career in security might be in your future!
