Commenting on the recent article, Spear Security Inc. notes that the successes demonstrated by New Orleans’ French Quarter Task Force show just how effective private security can be in protecting neighborhoods, businesses, and individuals.

Spear Security Inc. provides security services for everything from private events to office complexes.

Spear Security notes that their officers often work behind the scenes to help ensure that neighborhoods, businesses, and individuals are safe and secure.

In an article published July 30th by the New York Times, the author examined the current policing situation in the city of New Orleans, highlighting a security firm that is tasked with providing supplemental protection. Called the French Quarter Task Force, the firm is run by a tech oriented entrepreneur who worked with the city to provide private security when it is needed in a city that has constantly struggled, especially since Hurricane Katrina, to maintain sufficient security. While stories of big cities being policed by private security forces are not all that common, Denver-based Spear Security Inc. notes that private security is often much more responsible for citizens’ safety than many people assume. In fact, as noted by the article, there are three times as many private security officers in the United States as there are public police officers. Spear Security notes that their officers often work behind the scenes to help ensure that neighborhoods, businesses, and individuals are safe and secure.

  • Neighborhoods – As was the case in the French Quarter, neighborhoods that have insufficient police response time or that are particularly at risk for security issues often hire private security to supplement or functionally replace police protection. Spear Security Inc. notes that they provide patrol services that can help stop crimes before they occur, or at the very least, respond to crimes in progress at a rate much faster than many police forces.
  • Businesses – One of the most common uses for private security officers are to guard and protect individual properties and businesses. Spear Security Inc. notes that their business clients are a healthy mix of individual companies and office park or building managers who want their tenant businesses to feel secure in their rented office space.
  • Individuals – Spear Security Inc.’s Denver security guards also provide corporate security services to individuals on the move, and for single high-profile events. They note that, especially in areas where police are already stretched thin, the only place to turn to for this type of individualized security are reliable and trusted private firms like themselves.

Police still serve an extremely important part in keeping America safe, but often the scope of their abilities does not meet the demands of many citizens in certain areas. Anyone who finds that they, their business, or their neighborhood has fallen into one of these security dead spots can call Spear Security Inc. today at (303) 298-8373 or visit the firm online at
