Founded in 2012, OPS began with the premise that there is more to security than a simple physical presence and a heartbeat.
Security staff should be instilled with a sense of professionalism, an appreciation for customer service and an ability to offer that peace of mind our clients deserve. Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, OPS has since expanded to serve Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. With over 80 years of combined experience in security, safety, training, consulting and investigations, OPS offers a wide range of flexible security and safety services designed to keep you, your loved ones, employees, customers, property and community safe. We have received awards such as the Philly 100 and Soaring 76, which recognized our growth and achievement in the region.
Our leadership team brings diverse backgrounds from law enforcement, hospitality, FEMA, Armed Services, labor unions, event services, and corporate security to their positions and instills in our staff the belief that we are the first and last impression of our clients’ customers.
With these diverse backgrounds and an emphasis on being an employee first, OPS can offer a wide range of premium service options that meet our clients’ needs and expectations. Providing both armed and unarmed security officers to residential, commercial, office, and industrial as well as single-tenant facilities in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, government, educational and distribution industries. Our other services include, event security, executive protection, investigative, consulting, training and Virtual Concierge.
OPS Security Group is considered a disruptor and an innovator in the security industry. We invest in our staff not only by paying above the industry standard and offering comprehensive training but also through offering all employees paid time off, 401k plans, medical, vision and dental benefits. OPS offers paid training to our staff and free certification classes that would cost them thousands of dollars to obtain otherwise. OPS also recruits interns from security and business programs from several area universities who get real, hands-on experience in a fast-growing, regional business. We tailor each internship to fit the goals of the intern, allowing more or less time with different departments in the company to help them reach those goals.
Our President and CEO Dan Costa received a Patriotic Employer award in 2018 from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve which recognizes those who make it a priority to hire and retain those serving our country. OPS also values community engagement and promotes volunteerism by hosting events to give back to the communities in which the staff live and work. We look forward to seeing positive growth of the security industry and Philadelphia as a community through our efforts.
