SOCO PRIVATE SECURITY is a Native American veteran founded boutique security service provider, serving the public and private sector alike.

In England, where private security began, SOCO stands for “Scene of Crime Officer” …in California, SOCO stands for Sonoma County, where the company maintains its Corporate Offices and Training Facility.

SOCO was founded by John Iervolino, who had a storied career in security, including as a citizen police officer in Hawaii and, as operations manager and general manager for two of Northern California’s largest security companies. John sold SOCO to current owner Jackson Collins in April of 2023 and continues to consult and act as a customer care facilitator for SOCO.

Embrace The Future Of Security

A worker is only as good as his tools, and it today’s rapidly changing world, those tools need to be technologically sound. In the security sector, being able to stay in contact with your team and report activity immediately is a must. SOCO uses state-of-the-art computing technology to remain connected in the field for live reporting. Our SmartPatrol™ vehicles are equipped with cameras to record activity inside and outside the vehicles, and all our SmartPatrol officers wear bodycams as well.  Our officers are continually trained not only in crowd management and weapon safety, but also in various ways to incorporate technology and use computing to enhance our work.
