Harrisburg Security, Inc. was founded in 2005, by Owner and Company President Andrew Ives. We are licensed by the North Carolina Private Protective Services Board and are a fully-insured North Carolina Corporation.
Private, contract security is one of the fastest-growing and largest fields of service in the world and we believe we are at the apex of the industry. We have been here for over a decade and we still strive to be the best this industry has to offer!
At Harrisburg Security, Inc., we believe in bringing a “home town” attitude and value to all we do! We are proud of our Charlotte roots, our employees and our clientele. This all began in 2005, when a former Police Officer decided the field of security needed a change towards a more professional feel and attitude – it was time to build a company on the values long-since forgotten by the larger, franchised (chain) companies.
