Combining our excellent customer service with high levels of security responses, 2 Zero 5 Protection & Investigations always has the needs of our clients first and foremost in our minds. As a result, we are able to maintain professional standards that far surpass any other company in the industry.
Rather than following the lead of many other security companies and hiring anyone who walks through their door and submits our application, we choose instead to have only guards who are well-trained, present a professional appearance and demeanor, and commit to protecting the property and people to which they are assigned. To accomplish this, we hire many veterans in the security field, letting them put their skills and discipline to work protecting their fellow citizens.
