Security companies are a dime a dozen.  Quality companies are out there, but are hard to find. That is why we started our business. Other security companies pay their employees very little and have a lot of turn over. Their wages also reflect the quality of their employees. These companies often carry no, or inadequate, insurance. Don't put your business at risk. Principle Intelligence covers your bases and is competitively priced. Call today for a free quote.

Principle Intelligence was started by active police officers coming into contact with "wanna-be cop" or "malignant ineptitude" security companies while working the streets. We pride ourselves on providing highly-skilled personnel that are highly-trained, and are proactive by using visibility to deter criminal activity, as opposed to reacting to it. All personnel are off-duty law enforcement personnel, or they are trained by certified instructors with law enforcement experience.

We conduct a thorough risk managment assessment for our clients which includes threat, vulnerability, and criticality if needed.   The assessment confirms the need for security.  However, we can start security services as soon as you tell us to begin, on the same day if needed. We realize that in our business our clients need immediate peace of mind. We will help in any way we can so you can get back to your business as soon as possible.  

  Principle Intelligence has no long-term contracts. We want to earn your business. If you don't think we provide the best security service out there, we make it easy to cancel. Typical contracts for security service require 30 days’ notice to cancel.
