A Wide Selection of Cheap Services To Meet Your Security Needs


Hiring a well-trained security officer or staff at an affordable price doesn’t mean you should have to deal with a drop off in quality, training or performance when it matters most. We understand that, for many of our customers, cost is a major factor in deciding who to hire for security. This is one of the main reasons we are constantly striving to find ways to save our customers money on their security costs.


While we have many high-end customers, not all of our security assignments are for Silicon Valley companies or private residences in Marin Country. In fact, many of our customers are companies that face a common dilemma: they’re a small business on a limited budget and need to find an affordable way to hire security guards. Hiring the cheapest security guards available can sometimes be a dicey proposition, especially with a company that is not established or doesn’t have an established evaluation process or hiring standards.


At First Security Services, we have a bevy of options that are appropriate for a wide range of customers, regardless of their budget. Our most expensive security officers go through the same background checks, training and evaluation as our cheapest options because we want to deliver the best possible service at the best price available.
