Protecting Your Peace Of Mind

In our 30+ years of business, we have fine-tuned our services to exceed our client’s expectations. After all, exceeding expectations is what we have built our success upon. We are constantly evolving to ensure the services we provide remain ahead of the curve, innovative and consistent. From being the first company in Oregon to install laptops in our cars, to the first to provide professional sedans (Impalas) for patrols, we have set the stage for the industry.

Below are brief descriptions of each of our professionally provided security services. Please click on the one you would like to read more about — however, we may encourage you to review each one, as the perfect strategy for you may include a little of each. We look forward to hearing from you on how we can work as a team to develop the right security strategy for you.

Security Officer

On-Site Security Officers

We provide professionally trained and experienced Security Officers to protect your property, inside and out. We apply our proprietary training approach to all of our Officers to ensure they are able to exceed expectations. Through our thorough selection process, we ensure each Officer is the right fit for each account.

Alarm Response

We began as the original private response provider to the Pacific Northwest! If the intruder does not respond to our audio deterrent, we can dispatch our officers to the scene. Our officers respond to 100% of our alarms and you can always count on them to show up to your premises and assess the situation. Whether you are a small parking lot or a multi-building facility, we have the technology and communications to ensure our response is quick, detailed and accurate.

Patrol Services

No one provides a better patrol service than First Response. Period. There are many imitators out there claiming to provide the same all-encompassing suite of services (Guard & Patrol, Security Systems and local dispatch and monitoring). This is simply not true.

First Response is the most experienced patrol provider in Portland, providing over 4500 patrols to more than 200 locations weekly with the most qualified and trained Officers in the industry. Whether it is one nightly vehicle patrol, lock-up, or door check, we can accomplish it with consistency.

Our Guarantee Is Complete Client Satisfaction.

With the number of Officers we have on staff and the volume of Officers on duty throughout each day, no company is more qualified and prepared to assist you in the event of an emergency. If you are not completely satisfied with our security services within the first month, you may cancel immediately at no charge.

Big Enough To Get The Job Done, Small Enough To Care.

Our company has been recognized 7 different times by the Portland Business Journal as Oregon’s 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

First Response handles hundreds of patrol accounts and thousands of alarm monitoring accounts throughout the Northwest.
