ABCO Investigations
ABCO Investigations is a legitimately licensed and fully-insured agency with properly trained personnel who have all passed criminal background security clearance. Our staff consists of highly trained professionals to include current and former State, County, local police, F.B.I. and military personnel with specialized backgrounds. Before an employee is considered for licensing with ABCO, we also run full and complete background checks to include the following areas:
  • Verify Social Security Number
  • Driving Records
  • Education Verification
  • Personal References
  • Criminal / Arrest History
  • Workers Compensation
  • Employment History
  • Sex Offender Registry
  • Drug Testing
  • Uniformed Security Services
There are companies all over the country that operate without licenses, insurance or proper training. Some companies hire individuals without conducting proper background investigations which leaves YOU open to huge liability and costly lawsuits. There are many incidents where unlicensed security guards have been charged with violent crimes or other misconduct while on the job. When these incidents do occur you will find in most cases the individual has a criminal history.

When you have made the decision to hire an unarmed security guard, you will need to decide on what type of Guard Company will best suit your needs. They are easily divided in to the (2) two categories of nationwide and independent. They are very different and each has its advantages. The nationwide companies operate on razor thin profits and pay the guards rock-bottom wages.

The big advantages to you are the low initial cost and the comfort of knowing that they probably will not be going out of business tomorrow.

The downside is low employee retention, inadequate backgrounds, typically low quality employees and impersonal service.

If squeezing that last penny is the client's absolute only concern, then nationwide service is the way to go. The downside of an independent company is generally a slightly higher hourly rate. The advantage of an independent company is more personalized service directly from the owner enhancing client satisfaction, a typically higher quality trained officer, better retention and faster response to problems and emergencies.
