Black Knight Security
Founded in 2003, Black Knight Security (BKS) specializes in security for commercial, residential, manufacturing, and industrial properties.
BKS exceeds standard guard service by offering emergency action planning and security consulting services, as well as training classes for facility occupants on how to respond to emergencies. Every BKS security guard is thoroughly screened, trained extensively, and also certified by the American Heart Association in first aid, CPR, and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) – an unusual attribute for a security company.
Black Knight Security provides protection, safety and education for tenants, visitors, and workers with a strict focus on preparedness, which is the key to not only feeling safe, but actually being safer.
At Black Knight Security, we believe that preparedness is the key to truly making persons and property secure. That’s why we prepare our clients for the unexpected by equipping them with all the tools needed for an effective emergency response. By understanding and identifying each client’s unique security needs, the BKS team can determine which security services are necessary to keep tenants and visitors safe. Taking a partnership approach with our clients, we believe it is in our mutual best interest to continue to search for the most cost-effective security solutions by monitoring the latest developments in the industry.
