Assets Protection, Inc. has created the best and most effective security services in the Delaware Valley, expertly delivered by highly trained and motivated people. We continue to grow based on our centralized, hands-on approach that allows us to deliver quality service at an affordable price.
Serving Pennsylvania • New Jersey • Maryland
Assets Protection, Inc. was founded in 1988. The management team left a large regional security company which had been acquired by a national security company. The era of mergers and acquisitions in the security industry was just beginning. The management team realized that these industry changes were becoming detrimental to the level of service and quality our customers had come to expect. Based on our back to basics philosophy of quality, hands-on service, Assets Protection, Inc. grew rapidly.
Our fastest growing market consisted of customers who were disenchanted with their security provider’s philosophy of decentralized site-based, self contained security operations. Our management team worked closely with our customers to develop comprehensive security programs at competitive prices. Assets Protection, Inc. is currently licensed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. Our success and our story continues.

Assets Protection, Inc.’s process of selecting personnel to protect the multi-million dollar assets of our clients goes beyond just the legislative mandates. State and federal laws require verification of eligibility for employment through the documentation of age, United States citizenship, naturalization registration, etc. All applicants for employment are fingerprinted and those fingerprints are forwarded to the appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Assets Protection, Inc. goes beyond the minimum standards through the use of a comprehensive application form and an in-depth interview conducted by our experienced management team. They understand the applicant’s capabilities, and the breadth and scope of our client’s requirements. A thorough pre-employment background investigation of at least three previous employers is conducted to determine honesty, loyalty, work habits and the overall integrity of the applicant. Educational and military history are also a part of our background investigation.
We utilize rigorous employment screening methods, including five-panel drug testing, third-party background checks, Homeland Security checks, fingerprinting and online criminal checks.
The application and hiring process is also used to determine the communication skills of the individual, both verbal and written. Additional background investigations may include consumer credit reports, Social Security Number verification, driver’s license check through the Department of Motor Vehicles, and other specialized services.
The extra efforts taken during the initial stages of screening and hiring assure the highest possible level of security for your facility.
Assets Protection, Inc.’s training is the key ingredient that determines the overall success of any security program. Individuals are not born security officers – they must be trained and developed.
The training process begins in the office at the time of hire. An orientation and review of the employee manual, ‘Ready and Reporting for Duty’, is conducted. The importance of the position of a security officer is emphasized.
Training is enhanced through the use of an extensive video library which has topics designed for both the security officer and the supervisor. Security officers are tested for their comprehension of the subject matter:

Comprehensive on-the-job training and our security manual furnish site-specific instruction which includes required duties, post assignments, emergency call lists, and other information pertaining to the client facility.

Assets Protection, Inc. subscribes to the philosophy of a totally involved management, dedicated to providing security services of the utmost professionalism and integrity. Our hands-on management technique is taught to every supervisor and supported by the entire management staff. Our management personnel are actively aware of the the day-to-day security operations at each client facility. Regional managers and/or executives of Assets Protection, Inc. visit with each client at least once per month to review security concerns and program design. This allows us to maintain close control and accountability of the programs and discuss suggestions for improvement.
Supervisory personnel visit each site to perform unscheduled inspections of the assigned security staff. This is done to assure proper uniform attire is maintained and that all security personnel are performing their duties as prescribed by the client, and by Assets Protection, Inc. training and post order manuals.
The Guard Electronic Monitoring System (GEMS) is an innovation designed by our electronics experts to further enhance the integrity of our security program and the safety of our uniformed personnel. GEMS is designed to transmit an alarm signal to our Central Monitoring Station if the guard fails to cancel its transmission at pre-programmed intervals. Our management and supervisory staff are immediately notified of an alarm condition and are dispatched to the site to determine the cause, so an appropriate action can be taken.
It is programs such as these that assure a quality and successful program for you.
