Protecting your best interests since 1999

FCS Security Services.

First Coast Security is a premium contract security service company headquartered in Jacksonville, serving clients in over 20 primary and secondary markets across the country.

As a strong mid-market company ($120M+ revenue), clients throughout the country entrust us as the best-qualified firm to protect their highest-value assets – while delivering the quality, value, and responsiveness that they need.

We offer you a compelling alternative to small local companies with dangerously few resources, and large international firms hampered by mergers, inflexibility, and poor responsiveness. Our growth is fueled by selective clients who reject both models – and instead seek a security partner who offers strong responsiveness, low transitional risk, and exceptional past performance.

Our market position also allows us to attract and retain the highest-caliber managers and executives – talented individuals who reject the hurdles and burdens inherent in other business models, and are instead driven to deliver highly-responsive best-in-class service.

Our model and selectivity allow us to provide what competitors frequently deride as a “bespoke service”: we carefully select the right people, train them to exceed your specific requirements, and provide them with a culture that is focused intensely upon both client and employee satisfaction.

This model best supports the type of long-term partnerships that have been the foundation of our success and resulted in employee and customer retention rates that far exceed industry benchmarks.

Brand Standards.

Defining our brand starts with the vision that compelled our Owner, E. Bland Cologne, to found FCS. When asked why he started our company, his answer is always the same: “To protect my city, Jacksonville.”

As the company took shape and grew, our focus widened to other markets as customers quickly recognized what made FCS different from the competition: FCS delivers custom-tailored protection designed to meet each FCS customer’s unique needs. While we constantly strive to perfect our existing capacities and develop new ones as the needs of customers evolve, the offering we deliver to each FCS customer is never cookie-cutter. It is developed specifically for them.
