About CPS

CPS is widely recognized as a quality provider of contract security services. Our clients are as concerned with the quality of service as they are with the cost effectiveness of their overall security program. We provide professional security officers, security patrols, and the most advanced camera/surveillance system available on the market. A combination of these services can provide the optimum security program for almost any facility.

Some of our competitors are qualified to provide the basics on a relatively consistent basis. However, CPS stands alone in the industry in our desire and ability to go the extra mile in every aspect of our service to our customers and to our employees. In your search for the right security service we understand that peace-of-mind is the bottom line. We sincerely hope that the following information will affirm that with CPS you will know the job is being done right.
