American Shield Private Security, Inc.--Security Guard Services in Downey
American Shield offers our clients in Downey the best security services at the lowest possible rates available in Southern California. With each new client, we take the time to design a comprehensive security plan with customized post orders that specifically meets their security concerns, vulnerabilities, needs, expectations, and budget limitations. Then, our management team carefully selects one or more of our highly qualified and extensively trained security officers based upon who they feel can best fit the responsibilities of the assignment.
At American Shield Private Security, because we understand that the quality of our security services is only as good as the quality of our security guards, we invest an incredible amount of time and energy in the screening, selection, training, and supervision of our guards. Our guards are required to pass a complete background check as well as a government e-verify check, drug test, and reference check; display a commitment to our code of ethics; obtain their BSIS security guard; and receive ongoing training well beyond the 40 hours required by the state. When on assignment, our guards are required to check in and out with one of our dispatchers, and use a computerized system to track their position on an hourly basis. Our field supervisors also perform random on-site checks and communicate with our clients to ensure that we are meeting our Downey clients' needs and that they are satisfied with the performance of our guards.

We offer comprehensive, professional guard services--including standing guards, patrol guards, lock up and alarm, alarm response, fire watch, event security, and parking enforcement--at incredibly competitive rates.
