We Take Action

We start by identifying the most relevant and immediate threats facing our clients. Armed with this knowledge, we guide our clients through managing these risks effectively. Our approach is proactive and comprehensive, focusing on the safety and security of your people, your property, your visitors and patrons, and your reputation.
When you partner with K17 Security, you’re not just hiring a security provider—you’re enlisting the support of a dynamic and dedicated team that is committed to your success. Trust us to safeguard what matters most to you, so you can focus on achieving your goals with peace of mind. 

Locally Based & Community Oriented

K17 Security is a local, independently-owned and operated small business with local ties, knowledge and expertise. We invest back into our community. We use local vendors, we employ local security professionals and veterans and keep our profits close to home instead of shipping them to an out-of-town headquarters.

Why K-17 Was Formed

Our company was born out of a recognition of a troubling trend in our industry: a pervasive lack of professionalism, marked by greed, ego, and a failure to meet expectations. Scott Zimmerman, Founder & CEO of K-17 Security, observed a disturbing trend in the security industry that seemed to not prioritize the genuine safety and well-being of others, with priorities skewed towards self-interest rather than the collective good. Truthfulness and honor seemed to have taken a backseat to personal gain.

In response to this disheartening reality, Scott founded our company with a clear mission: to redefine security and make a tangible difference in people’s lives. Our goal is not just to provide security services, but to ensure that these services truly enhance safety and peace of mind. We are committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and accountability in all that we do.

At our core, we believe in the importance of honesty, honor, and genuine care for the welfare of others. Every decision we make, every action we take, is guided by these principles. We are dedicated to building a company culture that prioritizes transparency, reliability, and ethical conduct, because we understand that true security goes beyond mere protection—it’s about fostering trust, fostering safety, and making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
