SOCO Company Overview – Brief

SOCO PRIVATE SECURITY is a boutique security company serving business and private sectors alike.

In England (where private security began) SOCO is the acronym to "Scene of Crime Officer"…in Northern California, SOCO stands for Sonoma County. SOCO was founded by Santa Rosa resident, John Iervolino, who started in security many years ago as a volunteer community police officer in Hawaii and most recently, as operations manager and general manager for two of Northern California's largest security companies.

SOCO employs military and law enforcement as well as professionals from all career paths. Presently, SOCO is the only security provider in Northern California training all of its security officers (on continual basis) in Identifying & Dealing with Mentally Ill & Homeless people, LGBT sensitivity training and requiring Physical Readiness Testing. Additionally, SOCO works closely with Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park & Windsor Police Departments as well as the Sonoma County Sheriff.

SOCO PRIVATE SECURITY is "The New Breed in Security®" breaking all the negative stereotypes and stigmas that plague the industry today.
