Security & Investigative Services, Inc. has provided
professional on site security personnel in Georgia since
1984. Our personnel are trained, vigilant, and dedicated
to providing our clients with the best on-site security
in Southwest Georgia. We are the only security guard company
to be awarded the Albany Herald's Readers Choice "Best
of the Best" award, not just once, but two years
in a row (1994 & 1995) and again in 2001. We have
on staff former Secret Service and Former State Revenue
Agents, former State Fraud Investigators/Director, and
Hi-Tech Computer Investigators, along with security consultants
from most every field of expertise. But, as good as we
are, we recognize that in some situations there are some
shortcomings due to the physical limitation of humans.
As dedicated and observant as our
personnel are, they are limited to seeing only what is
in their immediate area. While patrolling one side of
a building they cannot, simultaneously, observe the other
sides. On-site personnel are also subject to assault and
can be deliberately distracted by those intending to commit
a theft or vandalism.

presence. Two, there is a human on-site and trained to
make a decision as the activity is happening.
main purpose of security is to prevent incidents and secondary
to provide information for the eventual prosecution of
those involved in thefts or vandalism. In the event of
an incident, we only have the memory of the guard to relate
all the details, and we all know the limitations of memories.
In the excitement of an incident, the guard may miss seeing
some vital information required to prosecute the perpetrators.
