Our History

Command Security Corporation began operations as R.J. Thompson, Inc. in 1980. Based out of New York, this corporation focused on furnishing uniformed guards and investigative services under the leadership of its founders and sole stockholders. By the end of 1983, stockholders acquired all outstanding stock of the company and later that year acquired Command Security, a Connecticut corporation focused on uniformed security and investigative services.

In 1983, the company began operating under the name of Command Security, and in 1986, all operations were consolidated under the New York Corporation. In 1995, Command Security acquired the assets of United Security Group, which provided security services in New York and California. That acquisition also included Aviation Safeguards, a leader in the aviation security and services industries. Our most recent acquisition was in 2007 of California-based Brown Security Services, which included its subsidiaries of Strategic Security Services, Inc. and Rodgers Police Patrol, Inc.
