Our security management staff is a combination of experienced professionals that include loss prevention specialists and corporate executives to meet the challenges of our client's needs. Field supervisors are a critical part of the management staff that monitors the day-to-day activities. Therefore, each supervisor is sent through a vigorous screening process to reflect the commitment of our vision and mission.
We are licensed, bonded and insured, and every member of the SkyTech Security team is capable of facilitating an in-house "site specific" training program that focuses on reliability, accountability, dependability, customer service, and professionalism. In addition, we mandate standards for training that exceed the minimum requirements of local laws for security agencies. This includes, but is not limited to: 20 hours of basic training, drug testing, psychological testing, 40 hours of firearm training, and ongoing annual refresher training.
SkyTech's President, Tony Rakestraw and Anna Rakestraw, began in the security business in Detroit, Michigan in 1972. Since then, we have made great strides to improve our business procedures by adopting best practices gained through our extensive past experiences. Our business model is to provide superior service at a fair price. We do not accept anything less than full contractual compliance from our security staff.
