Stacie Pink-Waters, Office Manager/Bookkeeper, joined the company in 2004. Since then, she has worked behind the scenes keeping up appearances and maintaining a business and personal relationship with our clients.  Her skills for organization and office knowledge help keep the business running smoothly.  She is trained in QuickBooks, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Internet Processor, Telephones, Ten-Key, and Customer Service.

Security Officers, We hire officers who have experience and training in law Enforcement, military services, private Security, and customer service/guest relations.  Our officers go through a background check and drug screening before being hired.  Officers receive instructions in loss prevention, patrol procedures, crowd control, access control, emergency situations, and Homeland Security (Anti-Terrorism Awareness).  Officers are trained in First Aid/CPR, TIPS, Bloodborne Pathogens Awareness and continuing training either by classroom, web site training or some type of national certified security program.  At our client's directions, First Line Security personnel uniform/attire can range from a high profile security uniform to a more sophisticated low profile coat and tie. 

The foundation of our values is our people. First Line Security is the only one of a few security companies that provides outstanding salary to its officers.   As a result we expect and demand more from our officers.  We select only those officers that meet our strict requirements to work on our team.  All officers must have at least 2 years experience before being considered for employment.  Beside experiences and qualificaitons which they bring with them they must fit the appearance and behavior of a security professional and have strong customer service and guest relations.  This is what seperates us from all other security companies in the area.
