Louisville Security Services

For over 80 years and three generations of family leadership, Brantley Security Services has been the name that Louisville trusts for security and event management services.

Founded right here in Louisville, we understand that delivering a consistently superior level of security means having qualified, properly trained personnel on-site.

Each Brantley security officer undergoes a pre-employment assessment, and then receives thorough, site-specific training. Our assessment and training programs work together to place confident, capable security officers at properties throughout Louisville.
