Community Involvement & Charitable Donations
K17 Security believes strongly in giving back to the community. We have local roots and in turn, we support local. Community outreach, love of country and goodwill for others is deeply ingrained into our mindset and company structure. We regularly support and donate our security and consulting services to the following organizations. By doing business with us, you allow us to continue supporting these life-changing organizations.
Y’all are the best security team I have ever met. Thanks for all the support!
Awesome having K17 Security at the car show today! Love, love, love our officers!
Thank you to K17 Security for providing security for the 2nd Annual Warrior Ride & Car Show benefiting Operation Second Chance. Great people supporting great causes.
K17 officers are professional, dependable, and experienced. I believe that having their presence has reduced the likelihood of any issues that might detract from the purpose of these events. I would highly recommend then to others!
