Achates Security Agency was founded in 1958 on the premise of friendship as defined by virtue, justice and fidelity. These words appear in Latin on a banner, written beneath the ever watchful eye of the Owl that appears on our company heraldry.
Fidelis: faithful, loyal, true.
Justitia: justice, fairness, equity.
Virtus: valor, excellence, character, worth, courage.
Like a loyal friend, Achates strives to provide the level of service and commitment to our customers that we would extend to any of our personal friends and neighbors. We are there when you need us most. We want you to feel safe, secure and to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your business and personal affairs are taken care of.
We instill in each and every one of our officers the sense of honor, duty, loyalty and personal character that makes a true friend. We hope to have the opportunity to show you how it feels to have a loyal friend in private security.
