About Us


CEO Jacob Harris and Co-Founder Joshua Griffin met while working at one of the largest corporate retail security companies in the country. Both decided they wanted to make a positive impact on the private security industry. Harris and Griffin realized that they both shared many of the same views regarding multiple aspects of the private security industry. This made them eager to open their own company, one that would effectively intersect their expertise with their respective interests.

Piedmont Security & Patrol Services, LLC opened its doors in 2017. Since then, we've been fortunate to provide uniformed security services to retail locations such as Apple Inc. and TJ Maxx along with stores such as Home Depot and Dick's Sporting Goods.

In 2018, we had the opportunity to begin providing professional patrol services to the Piedmont Triad Metropolitan area.

"Integrity, Dedication and Professionalism"

Welcome to Piedmont Security & Company Police's website.

As the CEO and founder, is my mission to combine a high level of integrity, dedication, and professionalism in order to provide unsurpassed service.

The private security industry has been under scrutiny for years mostly because larger companies have not created a higher standard for security officer employment. Most security companies only follow state minimum guidelines and regulations for hiring practices. Unlike our competitors we have decided to make a difference in our industry and raise our hiring standards and requirements much higher than state regulations. We take care of our team by providing opportunities for career advancement, a competitive salary, and a merit-based workplace environment so our officers have a greater incentive to provide superior service to you.

It's vital that we work together to ensure the safety and security of you and your property.

Our team looks forward to working with you.


J. T. Harris
