Giddens Security Corporation is a Florida based security firm that was established in 1982 by Darrell Giddens. Darrell began operations 28 years ago because he saw a need for high quality, customer focused security service in Jacksonville. Darrell is the longest active Licensed Security Manager in the Greater Jacksonville area.
Conveniently located on the westside of Jacksonville at 528 South Edgewood Avenue, Giddens Security offers armed and unarmed security and patrol services throughout Florida and Southeast Georgia. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day.
Giddens Security emphasizes customer service as well as extensive training and supervision in the field. Our patrol supervisors consistently monitor our security officers to ensure quality service, and to provide immediate backup when needed. Giddens Security Corporation’s armed patrol officers are available twenty four hours a day to assist guards or our clients. Each site is checked a minimum of four to five times a week. Supervisor patrols can be tailored to your specific needs.
Giddens Security Corporation utilizes twenty four hour dispatch at our office located at 528 S. Edgewood Ave. Jacksonville, FL 32205. Twenty four hour dispatch enables our dispatchers, patrol supervisors, security officers, and on-call supervisors to be in constant communication to ensure a productive and safe working environment. Supervisors are equipped with two way radios as well as Nextel cellular phones. All clients are assured of emergency access to all levels of management any time, day or night, by calling 904-384-8071.
Giddens Security’s Training School is one of the only security officer training schools in the North Florida area that is certified by the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Division of licensing. Our certified instructors cover such topics as report writing, professional appearance and conduct, sexual harassment, basic first aid, patrol techniques, and emergency procedures. Not only do we train our own security officers, we train for other security companies and in-house security operations.
In order to maintain accountability of our security officers and to ensure quality service, we utilize the Guard 1 Pipe System. This computerized scanning system provides our clients with an accurate printout providing detailed information of the time, date, and location of the security officer’s rounds and patrols. The Guard 1 Pipe System is available to our clients at any time.
