Coastal Security LLC will provide quality service to our clients for a fair price, employing professional, neatly uniformed, mature , personnel able to effectively communicate with clients and their staff.
"We will often not be the cheapest security company in the area, but we will be the best!" C. Brian Bodine, President and CEO of Coastal Security.
Coastal Security is the premier security service company for the Alabama / Florida Gulf Coast. We pride ourselves in having the most extensively trained and professional guards in the area.
All of our guards have passed an extensive background check , pre-employment interviews as well as drug and alcohol screening. All guards must also submit to registration and fingerprint clearance by the Orange Beach Police Department (Alabama) or the by the Florida Division of Licensing (Florida).
Coastal Security's guards must successfully complete an in-depth initial training program covering such subjects as conflict resolution, access control, fire protection, law and rule enforcement. We also take great care to provide advanced site-specific instruction, assuring each assignment’s unique needs are addressed. In order to maintain the highest level of professionalism we provide continuous training to our employees through direct one-on-one training sessions delivered by Operations training staff.
Onsite guards provide the highest level of security on a property. These guards are often the first line of defense a client has to protect against unauthorized intrusions, thefts or other criminal acts or even enforcement of property specific rules.
Each guard site is provided with a reference manual that includes copies of all guard duties and responsibilities as well as standard operating procedures for that site. Additionally Coastal supervisors and managers are on duty around the clock to deal with any question of policy or to assist onsite guards. Our supervisors and managers routinely visit sites and provide additional support and assistance. We do not charge extra for supervisory personnel, it is part of our service.
Our on-site guards frequently perform other duties in addition to security on sites where it is beneficial to the client and it is practical to do so. Specific services are identified and agreed to by Coastal and the client at the time of contract. We are very open to ideas that will enhance the value of the service we provide to our clients.
For those properties that require an onsite person that performs other tasks beside security we have services available. Our personnel can handle a number of on-site services that a property association or business may require that are not security related such as equipment issue, light clean-up services, registrations, providing directions and assistance to guests, porter services to name a few. These Concierge personnel do not wear the formal guard uniform but are provided a casual uniform that blends with the property and the additional services provide.
For those occasions/events when you need extra security we can provide security officers for weddings, dances, parties, races or other events. The presence of a uniformed security officer will often times prevent an unfortunate incident from occurring. Our officers are trained to handle these events.
For those customers who want security but having an on-site guard on duty all or part of the time is prohibitive, Coastal Security offers additional patrol services. All of our patrol cars are equipped with “Navman” vehicle locator systems which not only accurately report unit locations but also log all property checks and provide 2-way text communication between dispatch and our patrol units.
The Drive-By Patrol Program provides a cost-effective way to have your property checked during the hours when you are not on site. Our patrol will check your property an average of 2 to 4 times per night identifying and handling any issues or concerns appropriately. Patrol guards will exit the vehicle as needed to check specific areas that are not readily observable, but do not conduct a full physical walk-through or facility lock-up. This service includes unlimited security responses when called to the property during the hours of service
Mobile Guard Service includes a more in depth patrol service. Our guards patrol client properties an average of 2 to 4 times per night exiting the vehicle as needed to check unobservable areas, but also conduct at least one a physical walk-though of the property including any facilities lock-up that might be required. This service also includes unlimited security responses when called to the property during the hours of service
Offered exclusively by Coastal Security, “Video Patrol” combines our Mobile Guard Service with video monitoring from our Central Dispatch Center. After installation of video cameras, the client property is linked wirelessly to our dispatch center, providing live off-site video monitoring for maximum security and protection thereby reducing the randomness of unmonitored patrol. Issues of concern are identified and relayed to our Mobile Guards for timely response.
“Video Patrol Service” is the most cost effective way to maintain the highest level of security possible, short of having an on-site guard on property 24 hours a day.
Because the actual video recording equipment can be physically present on site, the addition of an on-site monitor can allow an on-site security guard to observe these same key areas during the time that they are on site. Also in the event an incident occurs requiring a permanent record, the Digital Video Recorder (DVR) has the capability to copy video archives to a CD.
It is not our intent to sell CCTV equipment but rather offer an affordable security solution for clients demanding more than random patrols with service closely rivaling that of an on-site guard. We provide, install, maintain and own the cameras.

Harry Hayes - Lead Guard Harry Hayes found the pictured sign attached to his
portable guard house at Tradewinds during the summer. It was a message from his
friends at C-Sharpe regarding his weight gain during the construction phase at
Tradewinds. Apart of Harry's great sense of humor. We will miss him greatly.

Natiesha Campbell came to us from Kingston, Jamaica, on Summer Work Program while taking a break from school. She is currently working on her teaching degree at Mico University Teacher's College.
Adrian Ivanov is from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. He came to us on Summer Work Program, enjoyed meeting the people, and will return to the U.S. in the summer of 2007. We send best wishes to one of our hardest workers.
We celebrated the wedding of Michelle and Tommy Nelson on the 29th of April, 2006. Tommy is one of our Lead Guards and Video Monitoring Staff members. He and Michelle met in the drum corps competition and now both teach percussion in Pensacola.
Mario Blair is in his third year at the University of Technology in Kingston, Jamaica. We thoroughly enjoyed having him with us during his short break from studies. His major is finance and he plans to become a financial advisor and entrepreneur . . . one of the world's best, he says. Mario's philosophy is, 'Reach for the sky that you may fall on the clouds.'
Dimtcho Dimtchev is from the town of Sofia in Bulgaria. He is studying international relations at university and may look to a future as guide and translator for people who come to his country. He was a welcome addition to our team, but is now back at school. Dimtcho loved the tropical look of our beaches. 'The beach is calm and peaceful, very beautiful.'
We regret that we do not have pictures of all of the people who have joined us

people from other countries. We wish to thank them and invite them to return in
