Depending on your unique situation, an armed officer may be a better choice for your medium to high risk security needs.

Weddings can present a unique security opportunity. Although mostly a happy occasion, we’ve all heard the stories of some unruly relative or inebriated guest spoiling it for everyone especially the bride.

Many venues require security guards, particularly if alcohol is served at the reception. If your venue requires a security guard, or if you just want a security guard for peace of mind, be sure to hire a licensed and experienced professional.
