When Pedro Armando Villatoro founded Action Force Security (AFS), after 20 years of working in the sector, to provide security solutions with a team specialized in the film and television industry, he wanted AFS to have the characteristics of a great business, which is up to the demands and standards of companies such as ABC, Disney, CBS, Universal, Netflix, Sony, and Amazon.

3 qualities of a good private security company in California
Licensed & insured
Before hiring a private security company in California, verify that it is a state-licensed Private Patrol Operator (PPO) as established by California’s Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS).
This license entitles the companies as AFS to work legally in the state of California. Also, all our officers are licensed by BSIS.
An additional aspect that you can check, for your peace of mind, is that Workman Compensation covers all the employees as it happens in our case; and AFS offers its officers comprehensive health insurance, and 401K plans to our employees.
In the film, television, and entertainment industry, productions become involved in legal, personal, or financial issues of celebrities, so a good security company must guarantee maximum confidentiality in the management of this information.
Imagine that you hire an unserious and unprofessional company for your security, and your supplier ends up making public information about your staff or informs the press of details about the production that you wanted to keep under control. Such a situation could be terrible for the future of your project.
Therefore, it is better to trust AFS, where we have many years of experience and have always shown professional and confidential treatment to all our clients.
We have put measures in place to ensure that all client information and security details are kept strictly confidential.
For your peace of mind, AFS provides security for your sets, equipment, cast members, and crew, protecting and keeping any industry secret and your intellectual property under lock and key.
- Versatility and adaptatio
Another aspect that you should consider before hiring a private security company is that your provider has the installed capacity to adapt to changes in hours, programming or specific needs of your company.
At AFS, we offer temporary and permanent security solutions with flexible schedules and the possibility of adapting to changes in season and locations.
Bonus: Choose a company that is close to you
If you choose a company close to you, it reduces costs and gives peace of mind in case of unforeseen events. At AFS, we can provide backup in California 24/7 if it’s necessary.
