American Security was founded in Greenville, South Carolina in 1975, by Henry C. Harrison upon his retirement from the South Carolina Highway Patrol after 20 years of service. In the following years, American Security has become the largest and most responsible security company in the Southeast.
American Security’s management is made up on former State Troopers, SLED Agents, FBI, local law enforcement, and security professionals. Combined, management provides 400+ years of law enforcement and security experience.
In August of 1997, American Security merged the American Commercial & Industrial division and Action Staffing division to form a full service organization known as American Services, Inc. American Services provides contract security, janitorial, temporary employment services.
