CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Private security firm Picore International, today announced that it has landed a spot on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies, for the second year in a row. Additionally, Picore was also recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of its “Fastest Growing Privately-Owned Companies” in both 2015 and 2016.
Led by Dana Picore, Ph.D., a former LAPD officer, who is also a licensed private investigator and psychotherapist, Picore International, provides security services staffed by armed, unarmed and off-duty law enforcement officers for A-list celebrities, mobile carriers, educational institutions; museums; financial institutions; hotels and hospitality venues; retailers; office buildings; private residences; executives; and, large-scale special events.
As a Woman-Owned Business Entity (WBE), Picore International is making a name for itself in what has long been considered a predominately male-oriented field. Taking an ‘out of the box’ approach to modern-day security needs and requirements of both the public and private sector, Dr. Picore and her team offer the same quality and performance expected from large-scale security companies, delivered with a personalized, client-centered approach only available through their boutique-style security firm.
“I founded Picore International after recognizing a need in the industry for high-quality private security services delivered with a personal touch,” says Dr. Picore. “We don't just provide security, we provide our clients with peace of mind that comes from knowing they have access to our team whenever they need us, whether it be during the day, in the middle of the night or on the weekend. The bottom line is that we work in a business where urgency and attention to detail are the key to success, and when our clients can focus on their day-to-day operations without worrying about the safety and security of their employees, contractors and their facilities, then we’ve done our job.”
Picore International provides fully-integrated security solutions for companies of all sizes leveraging a workforce that is as diverse as its clientele. Going above and beyond the traditional security detail, Picore also offers training programs for businesses including threat assessments, behavioral sciences, workplace violence, dealing with corporate terrorism, and the safety of executives. Additionally, Picore is one of the only LGBT-certified security companies operating today.
In a time when security concerns are at an all-time high, many companies don’t think about the fact that without proper protection, business as usual can be turned upside down in a matter of minutes. "Security is about personal liability, and whether they realize it or not, a business is obligated to protect their employees from both internal and external threats to their workplace,” said Dr. Picore.
As a highly sought after Threat Assessment Expert/Workplace Violence Prevention Consultant, Picore International clients rely on Dr. Picore and her team for guidance in implementing the tools and strategies they need to secure and protect their businesses.
“Our company maintains a cadre of trustworthy, experienced professionals including a diverse mix of off-duty law enforcement, trained self-defense and private security professionals who embody our commitment to delivering high-quality protection services,” continued Picore. “We believe in strong ethics and judgment abilities, and we are committed to protecting our clients’ privacy with what we refer to as ‘Maximum Security with Minimum Disruption’. The rules of engagement are constantly changing and our focus is to keep our clients one step ahead of the game.”
