never felt safer

I am impressed with RC Security’s excellent customer service. They are very helpful and always so accommodating with requests. When my husband and I moved to our new house, we felt wary and so we looked for the best Security Service Sacramento could offer. We found RC Security’s competitive pricing which fit our budget perfectly. We have 4 kids and the security officers are really nice to them as well. The patrol guards are always on time and I find their work ethics very commendable. Mind you, under their calm and friendly demeanor, these are highly trained individuals. You can opt for armed or unarmed security officers from RC Security and for over a year now, we are glad to have chosen RC Security’s private security services in Sacramento. Our family has never felt safer under their protection. Keep up the good work!

Six months has passed since we had the misfortune of getting our home burglarized when we were out on a weekend trip. We have always been relaxed with security since we’ve been living in our apartment for almost 10 years already. However, since that incident, we’ve looked into apartment security services in Sacramento and subsequently, because of a friend’s recommendation, we got in touch with RC Security Sacramento. I gotta admit that we can now rest easy and sleep so much better knowing we have security officers patrolling the area and doing random checks to make sure everything’s safe and secure in our surroundings. WE have a planned vacation coming up and I’m just glad to know RC Security will be there for us. The RC Security officers are very professional and I can tell that they have been trained really well. They are never sloppy and sometimes I even feel like a VIP with the way they treat and address us. A week ago a neighbor of ours actually came by and told us that they too are glad we got security service because since then, the reports of suspicious activities in our area have gone down. Everyone is really benefiting from the great work that RC Security is delivering. Great job as always!
