SOCO Company Overview – Brief

SOCO PRIVATE SECURITY is a 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 Northern California, SOCO stands for Sonoma County, where the company maintains its Corporate Office and Training Facility. 

SOCO was founded by Santa Rosa resident John Iervolino, who started in security many years ago as a citizen 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 fields.  Currently, SOCO is the only security service provider in Northern California that trains all its officers, on continual basis, in appropriately identifying and interacting with the Homeless & Mentally Ill, LGBT Sensitivity and (PRT) Physical Readiness Testing.  Additionally, SOCO works very closely with the local Police & Sheriff's Department.

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

OUR Core Values:

Honesty, Integrity, Tenacity & Teamwork drive us to excellence.  We invite constructive critique, own up to our mistakes and endeavor to exceed our customers' expectations!
