We got our start on the Mississippi River over eighty seven years ago, and we're still the industry leader in warehouse, cargo and marine security. At this very moment we're protecting millions of square feet of warehouse space as well as container yards, storage facilities,  rail yards, truck yards, and marine vessels. And because we realize cargo security doesn't just involve security officers, our reputation for success has been hard earned by both our protective services divisions, and Louisiana Private Patrol Service, Inc as well as our in-house investigative facility,  Gurvich Detective Agency.


Not many security companies have much experience in our industry. Educating the security staff shouldn't be a part of your job, and it won't be when you choose us. We have by far the largest trained staff of experienced warehouse, cargo, and marine security officers of any security agency in the south Louisiana area. Experience is especially important on a crowded wharf or terminal, where ever the most innocent looking activity can actually be a theft in progress. No one else in the industry has the experience that we bring to bear on the event the most routine security measures.
