Our private security company was founded in 1958 as a single private security patrol service in Salinas, CA serving the Monterey peninsula. What began as alarm response and mobile patrol quickly expanded to offer both stationary security guards and mobile private patrol officers throughout California, Oregon and Washington. Today we offer private security services in the Portland, Oregon PDX Metro from our office in Vancouver, Washington and Monterey County from our office in Salinas, CA with services that include access control, concierge front desk receptionists, security escort and parking enforcement. Our community patrol units secure residential and commercial properties.
Achates (pronounced A-KAY-TEES) was the faithful companion of Aeneas in Virgil’s Aeneid, and has come to mean “A loyal friend”.

Local management, top professionals and personalized attention help us to provide our clients with a level of security service and accountability that is unavailable from the competition.
Your company deserves a loyal friend. Our philosophy is to serve you with proactive determination and proficiency. We take on the responsibility to reduce risks, prevent crime and safeguard our clients.
