What We Do

Golden West Security provides the highest level of security in Onsite Security Guards, Patrol Service, Alarm Response, and On-Call Response. We are constantly leveraging new technologies to improve our service and reduce costs, such as RVS (Real-time Video Surveillance) Patrol Pro and Tom Tom.

How We Do It

We employ only the best security officers in the business. They receive extensive training and undergo thorough background checks. Further, patrol officers and standing guards are managed by Watch Commanders, an important feature that almost all security companies do not offer. Our Watch Commanders have on average 12 to 15 years of experience and our supervisor tenure is one of the highest in the industry.

Company Background

Golden West Security was established in 1969 to provide professional, quality security officers for commercial and residential customers. We have grown to be one of the largest privately owned security companies in Southern California.

Management Team

The Golden West Security team was led by Jerry Usher who built this company, and has over 60 years of success in the private security business. The current Management team lead by Ralph Santarelli, has the depth, experience and skill to continue this legacy of success. Additionally, Gary Jeffrey and Mic Montalvo brings more than 30 years of experience in the Sales sector.

Organizationally, our employees and officers are supported and trained by highly qualified personnel with extensive law enforcement background. Golden West Security is very clear about the division of responsibilities between professional law enforcement and private security companies.

For months we have been working towards a six man supervision/Watch Commander team. This is going to provide our customers with superior service and give greater support to our field officers–both patrol and sentry. With this crew now assembled our ability to insure quality service has increased dramatically.

Our supervision team is as follows:

  • Eri Alvarez
  • Carlos Paredes
  • Mike Siebel
  • Tori Flowers

Additionally, Scott Frankos, Operations Manager, Hector Galan, Patrol Manager, and Roger Combs, Patrol Manager – Santa Clarita, bring over 40 years experience combined.

These are the employees that are going to help take the company forward into future.
