Pinnacle Security and Investigations is a leading Security and Investigations firm offering the highest quality commercial, residential, and private security services alike across the Gulf South Region.  Our management team has 33 years of experience in law enforcement, security services, and private investigations.  When experience matters, Pinnacle delivers.

Who We Are…

All of our security officers and private investigators are current or former law enforcement officers with a minimum of 3 years of active service with a law enforcement agency.  This 3 year minimum allows us to hire seasoned employees that have true experience in public service and a proven track record of success.  Our security officers and private investigators come from a public service background, which is shown by their interaction with residents of the neighborhoods they patrol and the business entities they serve.

Our officers and investigators have experience in the identification of crime trends, criminal investigations, and the strategic planning needed to effectively deter this crime before it happens. We believe that a focus on preventing a crime from occurring is much more beneficial to the community than investigating one after it has occurred. Our experience is current and our strategies are up to date with the latest and best practices of security companies and law enforcement agencies alike.

Pinnacle services clients in both the public and private sectors. We provide security services for industries such as retail, grocery, commercial, residential neighborhoods, film productions, maritime, executive protection, construction sites, and other private security services. We also have the experience in government security contracting, as well as security consulting and risk management.

Our private investigators specialize in criminal investigations. Their prior investigative work during their law enforcement career has given them unique experience into homicide investigations, narcotics, gang conspiracies, armed robberies, shootings, and property crimes. Our investigators provide valuable assistance to criminal defense attorneys.

Pinnacle Security and Investigations provides safety to employees as well as protection for your company assets. Our tactical, timely, and well-resourced strategies enable us to provide our clients with a comprehensive security plan that is both professional and cost effective.
