A Letter From The Owner
Before I even graduated high school, I was bouncing at nightclubs and working for multiple contract security guard companies in the Lehigh Valley area. I was quick to notice that with no training, these security companies would send overzealous employees to work with a uniform and a badge telling them that they were “law enforcement officers.” I noticed my peers acting like they were cops. I wondered how somebody making minimum wage, with little or no training was allowed to carry a gun, handcuffs and pepper spray all while deceiving others by presenting themselves as some sort of pseudo police officer.I quickly realized that this added more liability to the customer than it removed. When it came to doing what was best for the customer, I felt like these companies were falling short. That is why I started Omega Protective Services, LLC in Northampton PA. I felt that customers would appreciate professional, respectable services. That continuing education and respectable wages would maintain more qualified, better performing employees. Understanding that private security isn’t about power by deception but about providing the customer with a friendly, professional service while creating a safer environment and limiting the customer’s liability. Employing this business model has helped the company to grow year after year.
Realizing that serving the customer doesn’t begin and end with security guards, over the past several years we have grown to include more services. The addition of training services, EMT guards, investigations and surveillance/alarm system services have helped us meet the customer’s needs better than our competitors. Also, offering general event staff and event first aid to our already flourishing event security division has helped Omega to become the leading all-inclusive event services company.
I truly believe that Omega Protective Services, LLC is the best security company in the Lehigh Valley. I enjoy going to work knowing that my employees are in the field providing friendly, professional, safe and reliable services to the surrounding communities.
