Providing security services far beyond "industry standard"

Sacramento Protective Services, LLC (PPO #15568) is a progressive, Sacramento-based private security firm that is dedicated to providing the highest level of proactive security services to ensure the safety and security of our clients throughout the greater Sacramento area.

By acting through a proactive stance, SPS strives to prevent criminal activity on our clients' properties before it occurs, instead of merely observing and reporting criminal activity once it has already occurred. To accomplish this goal, SPS employs the Community-Oriented Policing, or "COP's" strategy, that is utilized by hundreds of law enforcement agencies nation-wide.

SPS strives to employ only the highest level of Security Officers in the industry; Officers who have "real-world" experience and possess the knowledge and training to "observe and act" rather than merely "observe and report." SPS Officers become active members of the communities in which they patrol and through the implementation of the COP's philosophy, SPS is determined to bridge the gap between law enforcement and private security for the betterment of the community


It is the goal of SPS to employ only the highest level of Security Officers in the private security industry.
