About - History - SecTek Private Security and Protective Services

History of SecTek

Our clients receive the depth, stability, and proven talents of experienced security professionals. SecTek provides the advantages of the largest security firms, without the downsides of a cumbersome management structure.

We are not so big that we have forgotten your importance. And, we mean what we say: SecTek will be available to support your contract 24/7. Our success is rooted in our responsiveness.

Founded in 1992, SecTek is a premier provider of security services to both government agencies and the private sector. We are recognized for superior protective solutions and the utilization of technology to improve our clients’ security posture.

We attribute our growth, in large part, to three uncomplicated core principles by which we have operated for nearly three decades:

  • We Honor Our Promises.  Our testament is simple: Our growth has been consistent.
  • We Respect Our People.  We are employee-owned. We promote from within. We encourage professional development.
  • We Strengthen Our Communities.  We mentor small businesses. We create work opportunities for disadvantaged students. We leverage employee charitable giving by matching contributions.

See the accolades of the Nation’s most prestigious and toughest clients in our Testimonials below, and let us show you how SecTek’s accountability can measurably increase the success of your security operations.


I have the opportunity to interface daily with SecTek’s project management, supervisory, and quality control inspectors and they all demonstrate the dedication and ability to ensure contract operations are compliant.

Department of Homeland Security – Federal Protective ServiceCOTR

Our overall satisfaction is more than the highest rating. SecTek has more than satisfied our needs and has provided services beyond their contract which has set our agency at 100% of its goal of providing professional, knowledgeable and experienced guard service.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)COTR

Excellent Project Management Staff. SecTek anticipated and executed day to day as well as emergency/unplanned tasks on time they consistently exceed the contract’s standards. Examples include presidential support missions, earthquake/natural disaster preparedness drills, Center-wide Safety, Fire and Crime Prevention and the [Spare] Shuttle Endeavors final voyage home to name a few.

The guards on duty are always courteous, efficient and extremely professional despite the pressure of the moment. I am extremely pleased with the service that I received.

Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS)COTR

From day one the entire SecTek organization. Security and Security Police Officers provided the highest level of services and frequently exceeded both contractual requirements and technical expectations. SecTek as a whole, not satisfied with just doing the job, became fully involved in the security and operational needs of the Center… provide innovative ways to approach meet and deal with today’s ever changing security levels, situations, environment and requirements.

Thank you all (SecTek) for a perfect job with security, from guards to the badging office, for professional and courteous service… outstanding, moving the crowds fast and efficiently, always displaying courtesy and helping out when they saw a need.
