A history of security, and service
American Security was founded in 1975 by Henry Harrison, a retired South Carolina Highway Patrol Sergeant. Now, some four decades later, the company is led by his son Randy, who retired from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division after 25 years of dedicated service. Both Henry and Randy served the citizens of this state with loyalty and dedication, and it is that same spirit and commitment to serve that drives our company today - and it's the reason so many of our clients have remained loyal customers since the company was founded.
Randy leads an officer corps and management team made up of dedicated professionals who come from various backgrounds including law enforcement, military, education, and business. This group of seasoned professionals provides the experience and qualities to our organization that set us apart from other security providers. The longevity and dedication of our officers is a testament to the caring culture that has been cultivated by Randy and his team.
American Security also has a long, proud history of recruiting and hiring military veterans. The value these individuals bring to our organization is proven daily in their allegiance to serving others. Being a South Carolina-based, American -owned company with close ties to the community has allowed us to give back to the community in many ways: whether it’s participating in local events, or serving on various boards and charities. Above all, our goal is to safeguard and promote the communities that we serve.
