Armed Qualified Security Guards and Officers:

API prefers to hire experienced security guard professionals with either law enforcement or military backgrounds. Our officers are dedicated and continue to qualify, train and develop their professional skills to provide our clients with the best quality service available.

Unarmed Qualified Security Officers:

We strive to supply our clients with security officers that represent both the client and API in a professional and ethical manner. API screens, and conducts background checks prior to placement on a client’s property. We believe ongoing training and discipline are essential elements in the development of all security guard professionals.

API provides its clients with twenty-four hour Field Supervisors. These senior managers are responsible for checking each client’s facility at random intervals to ensure that our officers are performing their assigned duties. We utilize the checks as an opportunity to evaluate post orders, survey the site for possible security recommendations and to review our officers log sheets to ensure all activities are properly documented.

API utilizes electronic monitoring equipment such as bar code scanning devices that allows us to verify the specific times an officer makes an area check. The officer carries the scanning device used to record each time a checkpoint is inspected. Upon each scan made a date and time along with checkpoint information is recorded in the device. This allows us to provide our clients with a professional detailed report that confirms when an officer checks each assigned location.

Qualified Security Guard Patrol

Our professional dressed officer will patrol the floors, act as a security guard secretary on request, do spot cleaning while on patrol, greet your guests and clients, escort your employees, monitor your video surveillance system, provide parking enforcement, assist the HR with terminations, turn off lights and save you money on utility bills, help with deliveries and deal with your vendors, provide access control, and do a million of other tasks, depending on your business' particular profile.

Key Benefits

  • Provide savings on personnel, utility bills, and a considerable discount from your insurance company.
  • Shield from legal and financial liabilities, protection of your property and personnel.
  • Provide the ability to combine multiple tasks and improve services while at the site.

We can perform assignments such as fuel gauge monitoring, fire prevention and control, access control, alcohol ruling enforcement, first alarm responder and security guard patrol for crime and safety reduction to mention a few areas that API can be of assistance.

Highly recommended security patrol

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I have worked in multiple offices where API installed and services their security systems. They have fantastic products and are always quick to assist. In the instances I've had an issue the owner Ed or one of his great employees has always been there to help!

Simply the best event security patrol in Columbus, OH!

Our camera system was seemlessly installed and the owner Ed Johnston makes himself available for any questions that come up. We are now considering using additional services with API Security. We recommend using them for you business too.

Excellence in every way!

I have been working with API Security from the last 2 years. The company has given me the opportunity to grow as a person. They provide training programs which helps the person to learn, grow and perform better at the job. If you are a person who takes responsibility and willing to grow, then there are a lot of opportunities, the company can give you. Working as a concierge, I learned how to talk to people, build connections and solve problems which is a skill that can help me for the rest of my life. I thank you API Security for everything.

Night shift security patrol for warehouse

We needed security service due to alarm malfunction at our warehouse over the weekend. We called these guys and they dispatched their security patrol officer within half hour! The seurity officer was very courteous and knew exactly what to do. Overall, their security guards went extra mile in their duties and exceeded our expectations.
