The Adventure Begins

The world has become a dangerous place to live and work. Professional Security Officers are needed more everyday to protect people, property and data. We are the bridge between Law Enforcement and the General Public. North Florida is committed to training and developing the highest quality security officers.

We are also just as committed in educating the general public, real estate agents, schools, churches, and businesses in protecting themselves and being more aware.
