We Provide Wedding Security in the entire states of New York and Maryland

When it comes to having security at a wedding, you can't afford not to have it. We are one of the leading wedding security providers on the East coast of the United States. We provide protective security officers, experienced private detectives, and security motorcade support for weddings. We also protect rehearsal dinners, honeymoons, events leading up to and after weddings. More and more couples are wanting their own private security for their wedding and rehearsal because of new and emerging threats. In today's times, brides will need to have their own security close by to protect them and make sure everything goes smoothly. Security that is sometimes provided by the event venue may be inadequate for the specific needs of each bride, groom, and wedding. One of the finest wedding gifts you can offer is safety and protection during a wedding. Couples want to feel like royalty by having protective security with them during their most important day of their life.

Consider using us at your wedding venue for overall security, exterior security, simple background investigations on participants, or an entire protective security detail with officers and motorcade support all at your disposal. No matter what your needs, we can provide what it takes to keep weddings safe.

Whether it be a jealous ex-boyfriend, family feud or just simple security in case something goes off script, don’t take the risk. Newlyweds should not take the risk on their most important day of their life. Leave nothing to chance. We will also work with wedding planners to give you everything you need for a safe wedding.

Use us any way you choose: Undercover, posing as guests, overt security, or an entire private protective detail. Short notice arrangements are available. We also recommend that you allow us to provide bridal protection for the days leading up to the wedding. This is due to increased incidents occurring the night prior to weddings. We are seeing a concerning increase of professional wedding crashers that try to infiltrate events. Surprisingly, many are in their 50’s and are very hard to detect. Others are in there 20’s as one would expect.

Public Security LLC is a United States veteran owned Maryland licensed private investigation and security firm led by Barry Donadio (former member of the U.S. Secret Service). We offer the highest level of trust and confidentiality in the private sector. We provide private detectives and security officers in marked security vehicles or undercover luxury vehicles that act as a deterrent to criminal behavior. We are insured with one million dollars of general liability insurance to protect our clients and relieve them of liability burdens. Are your existing security or off duty police officers experienced, licensed, and insured to our level? Ask them to prove it.

We use former law enforcement officers, veterans, defense contractors, former intelligence officers and experienced armed security professionals that have wealth of knowledge, experience, and medical training that are focused on defending people at events with positive results. We love weddings with a positive result that we helped create.

We stand ready to begin protecting you at any time and at a moment’s notice. We do not require you to sign a contract. Use us to fill in gaps provided by your current security team or regularly use Public Security LLC.
