Dr. John L. Schwartz, MD
Pacific Palisades

Recently my home was burglarized while my house-sitter was present. She immediately called LAPD and SSA. SSA responded first and communicated suspect information to the LAPD, assisted in coordinating their response and conducted an area search. They also alerted LAPD to the fact that I am a retired law enforcement officer and might have weapons in the house, which resulted in a greater response on the part of the police. After conducting an area search, SSA returned to my home to assist in securing the premises. From the initial response to assuring my home was secure and calming the house-sister, SSA did a thorough and professional job. I am delighted that I am a subscriber.

Riviera Palisades

SSA has been a positive presence in our lives for over a decade. They’ve made our neighborhood a much safer place, and we sleep and travel better knowing they’re on the job. Their patrol cars have high visibility and their officers are personable, quick to respond and always ready to help. There’s simply no comparison between SSA and the cheaper services — you indeed get what you pay for.

The Gale Family
Pacific Palisades

Terry, Jerry and their team have never disappointed me. The two founders are always available by email, their patrol cars know the homeowners they protect, and are reachable by phone 24/7. Whether I need a patrol car to meet me at the door; watch my home when I’m out of town; respond to an alarm activation; or investigate suspicious activity on my block, SSA is always there and ready to serve. I cannot recommend this service highly enough.

Susan Roth
Hancock Park

SSA is experienced, discreet and highly professional (staffed by current and former LAPD officers and law enforcement pros). They also happen to be a group of caring and compassionate officers. With 24/7/365 coverage, no other security patrol comes close to providing their level of service. Simply put, SSA provides the most exceptional private security and fastest responding neighborhood patrol in Los Angeles.

Judy S.
Windsor Square

Our neighborhood has seen an incredible reduction in crime since SSA started their patrol. Their expertly trained patrol officers provide an added sense of security knowing they are less than a few minutes away, should anything arise.

John Mass
Brentwood Park

Our family has lived in the Windsor Square neighborhood for many years. We have been clients of SSA since 2008. We have relied on SSA on many occasions when we or our daughters had safety concerns — whether suspicious cars or strangers roaming our neighborhood, or people in parked cars making too much noise, dumping trash, or engaged in extra-curricular activities — the response time is immediate as our call goes directly to the patrol car manned by trained law enforcement officers. No delays because of intermediaries. Most of SSA’s officers are current or former LAPD. They have a thorough understanding of the laws and the justice system. They are able to handle and diffuse tough situations, or if necessary, detain those who are breaking the law. They have close relationships with the LAPD which results in quick response times by the Wilshire and Olympic divisions. We appreciate the feeling of safety that SSA provides and back up our recommendation by continuing to be loyal customers.

Jack Humphreville
Windsor Square

SSA as a company, and their officers are extremely professional, empathetic, solution oriented, kind and just nice people. Combined with being authoritative and stern when necessary, the SSA officers always make us feel safe and secure in our home and neighborhood. We feel like we have our own police force patrolling the neighborhood. Since we hired SSA as our security patrol, I can’t imagine not having them part of our lives now. We rely on them whenever we go on vacation or are away from our home for a period of time. We never worry about our house being attacked, ever. They know each member of our family, including our children, our cars, our employees (gardener, housekeeper). SSA are like living guardian angels. And if that’s not worth every penny, I don’t know what is.
