First Line Security Services was founded in 1997 when it became obvious that there was a demand for a highly qualified security company serving high profile events, companies and individuals working and visiting Aspen, Colorado. Besides providing security, First Line Security felt that outstanding "guest service" was also needed. Thus, we became the only security firm in the area to provide such services in a guest-related, organization, treating our clients and the public with the utmost courtesy and respect at all times.
First Line Security started out by providing security for only conferences and private events held at some of the major hotels in Aspen with only five officers. In 1998 it was awarded its first major contract, the annual Food & Wine Classic, sponsored by Food & Wine Magazine. Since then, the operation of this huge event went from ten officers for a three-day weekend to today's standard of over fifty officers over a twelve-day period. Our services have now expanded from a "special event" only security firm to providing security for hotels, art shows, jewelry shows, construction sites, retail security, and executive protection (armed security). Please refer to Our Services for all that we provide.
First Line Security's area of operation now covers not only Aspen, but the entire western slopes to include Breckenridge, Vail and the Vail Valley, Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley a surrounding community. We have also expanded our services in Denver, Gunnison, Montrose and about to begin operations in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
First Line Security Services is a veteran-owned company supporting our men and women of the armed forces, (active duty, guard/reserve and retired) to also include all law enforcement officers and firemen. First Line Security's director is a member of American Society of Industry Security (ASIS), the International Foundation of Protection Officers (IFPO) and National Rifle Association (NRA).
