HOA Security Tampa

HOA Security Tampa
As portrayed in TV and movies, “Neighborhood Security Guards” conjures up an image of an upscale, gated community with a guard sitting in a gate house, feet on the desk lazily waving you by, only to get back to reading a newspaper or magazine.
The reality is vastly different. 
Homeowner association (HOA) security has arrived for the masses.  Community police budgets have been stretched to the limit, neighborhood police patrols are now a thing of the past and residents are looking for ways to make their neighborhood safer. Police are now “reactive” not “proactive”.
A homeowners association creates an opportunity for its members to benefit in many different ways. By collecting monthly dues, its members can afford many services that an individual wouldn’t otherwise enjoy. Far and away, one of the most valuable services is the protection of life and property.
HOA Security serves as a deterrent for criminals, but it can also enforce your homeowner association’s rules and regulations including parking enforcement, access control, and common areas. Apartment, condominiums and multi-housing properties are popular for intruders because of amenities such as swimming pools, gyms, spas, recreational facilities, parks, and playgrounds. These amenities are often found on the edges or outskirts of the property which make them harder to supervise or secure.

HOA Security Tampa - Experience is Key
Good security is not an accident; it is an integration of several related concepts, actions, and engagements which tend to be mutually supporting.
Convincing criminals to move on is a good step. Some things are easy, for instance locking doors. Some things are more difficult, that’s when you hire a firm that has HOA experience. The idea is to get started stacking the odds in your favor. Just knowing the most common security mistakes is a beginning. Often even little improvements can help you sleep more peacefully at night and let you enjoy an evening out without worrying if your possessions will still be there when you get back home.

Experience is Key

If you read an article on how to build a house, if someone puts a hammer or saw into your hand, that doesn’t mean you can build a house. Likewise, unless a security company has HOA experience, why would you consider them?

Florida Class D License Training in Tampa/Clearwater

Florida D Security License TrainingThe attainment of a Class “D” statewide license issued by Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is the first step in becoming a security officer.  Once you have completed the state-mandated 40-hours of classroom training and taken and passed the exam the State of Florida will issue you a temporary license.  The temporary license will allow you to begin working immediately while waiting for your hard copy from the State.  The Class “D” license is for unarmed positions.   For an armed position, you must complete the requisite requirements to obtain a Class “G” license that entails 28 hours of state-mandated classes plus a 48-round firearms qualification course.
You can register for the next available “G” Training HERE.
Note:  Anyone may take the class to obtain the Class “D” license.  However, F.S. 493.6109 outlines the guidelines that must be met in order to be eligible to obtain a “D” license.

  • Must be at least 18 years of age.

Why Families Hire Close Protection

Here’s 5 reasons why families hire close protection; Safety, Security, Lifestyle, Risk Mitigation and Privacy. ESS – Real security for the real world today.

Why Families Hire Close Protection

Why families hire close protectionTo the average person watching TV or a Hollywood movie, close protection is often seen as a “perk” of the “rich and famous”.
It’s not.
No one grows up aspiring to hire close protection agents.
why families hire close protection -ESS

Here are the reasons why families hire close protection.


Often, we use safety and security as synonyms. “Did you arrive at your destination safe and secure?” Safety refers to the “state” of being free of physical harm, while security refers to the “process” of providing the state of safety.
And for most folks, locking the doors and keeping your wits about you provides an environment that fosters safety.
Until it doesn’t.
For high net worth individuals and families, there are many ways to provide that “state” of safety for yourself and your family. Gated communities, security systems, and fencing are some ways that help protect.
Until they don’t.
And for some, they understand that it makes sense to “cure” their safety once it’s been breached. While others take a proactive preventative approach.
why families hire close protection - safetyAnd what about outside the home? That’s when you are most vulnerable . That fancy home security system doesn’t protect you when traveling. or when your children go to school.
And that’s the most common reason why families hire close protection. To maintain a state of safety outside the home.


The “process” of security is all around us. Bank guards, bar bouncers, lobby security guards, even school crossing guards remind us about this process every day.
Why do families hire close protection? We can’t speak for other firms, but here at ESS, it’s not about getting a big, intimidating fellow to walk around with you. It’s about threat analysis and risk mitigation. Those are the first steps needed to begin the “process” of providing safety to individuals and families.

Risk Mitigation

why do families hire close protection - threat analysis Again, the starting point for any serious risk mitigation efforts is a professional threat analysis. Unless you fully comprehend the threats facing you as well as your vulnerabilities to these identified threats, you have no way of assessing your risk. Consequently, you’ll have no understanding how to mitigate them.
When you understand and identify the threats, then add in your vulnerability (exposure), you can then begin to formulate a balanced risk mitigation plan.


For executives, sports figures, celebrities, politicians and other high net worth individuals the “cost” of loss of freedom reaches a point where it needs “balance”.  The tipping point comes when they realize that they can no longer maintain their preferred lifestyle without professional close security. Because with loss of freedom, comes loss of privacy.


why families hire close protectionWhether they’ve made their fortune in high profile fields such as the entertainment industry, or sports, or are powerful players in closely-scrutinized industries or any other reason, families and individuals want privacy. And while “fame” might be seen by some as a “perk”, the bottom line is the more well-known a person or family member is, the more likely they are to be approached by strangers.

And in almost every case, these types of interactions are unwanted. These invasions of privacy can have a threat level that ranges from negligible to imminent. They include troublesome but basically harmless exchanges with strangers and they can also be hostile. And it’s these threats that can then become crimes (assault, stalking, harassment, kidnapping).

ESS Global provides individual and family close protection services in Tampa, throughout Florida and the US, as well as in over 60 countries worldwide.
