From Our Website

American Security LLC has provided security, investigative, and consulting services since 1959. A strong commitment to customer satisfaction has enabled us to become the largest independently owned, full service security agency in the Midwest. Headquartered in St. Paul, MN, American Security has operations in six states; Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. American Security employs in excess of 1,500 professionals engaged in security and security related services. We have clients with service needs in excess of 2,000 hours per week and as few as 20 hours per week.


Traditional security scenarios fall into one of two categories; video cameras (sometimes being monitored) and live guard patrols. In most cases where the video feed is being monitored, it is being done by the live guard on premise. What happens when the guard needs to respond to an event viewed on the monitor? The guard stops viewing the activity to move to the location of the event not knowing what has happened in the interim. American Security & Investigations eliminates the unknown in this situation by remotely surveying the video using live Intervention Specialists in our remote monitoring facility and communicating with the live guard as he/she responds to the location.


American Security & Investigations provides a variety of investigative services to meet the needs of our customers. Asset Search may include a request for bank account numbers, brokerage and mutual fund information, real property, bankruptcies, liens and judgments. In order to conduct this type of search, you must provide American Security & Investigations with a social security number or Tax I.D. number. Consumer Credit Reports provide a seven-year history of an individual's credit history. American Security & Investigations requires a consent and authorization by the subject and must accompany the request for a credit report in order to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.


Security is never simple and threats never one-dimensional. American Security and Investigations is one of the largest independently owned, full-service security agencies in the U.S. Our holistic approach to security assures that each of our clients receive a complete and comprehensive solution to protect what is of value to them; whether it be a business, school, campus, job-site, equipment or more. Holistic security systems created by American Security are layered programs, tailored for specific needs, and integrated into a client's risk management program.
