Why Choose Pinkerton Security

Choosing a security company to protect your hard earned possessions is something that should be given careful consideration. Whoever you choose will be privy to confidential information. Your decision should be based on many factors such as:

  1. Does the company have all the required licences?
  2. Do all staff have the appropriate licences?
  3. Have all company staff had Police checks?
  4. Has the company or any senior staff been bankrupt?
  5. Does the company comply with OH & S requirements?
  6. Does the company have public liability insurance?
  7. Is the company locally owned and operated?

If your prospective security provider answers no to any of the above so should you. Only reputable companies that have been stringently checked and have a good trading history should be considered.

Pinkerton Security comply to all the above and in some cases far exceed the requirement. With 30 years of continual trading it is no surprise that Pinkerton Security is the largest security systems installation company servicing the North East, Border region and beyond. With a wealth of knowledge we can design a system that will protect your precious premises and assets to your satisfaction. Our job does not stop after an installation is completed, all systems have a warranty period.

We also offer after hours technical support to all clients, the technical support is by a technician not a call center or answering service. We are here to look after your security needs BEFORE, DURING and AFTER an installation.

Our Story

In 1983 Mario Pane, who was born and raised in the North-East Victorian town of Wangaratta, saw the need for an alternative Security Service based on knowledge of the technology behind the security industry.
He realized that security companies who relied predominantly on manpower services (patrols and responses) were not offering the client the means to keep ahead of criminal offenders. Only a greater use of technology could do that efficiently with greater control and input by the client.
The security industry has adopted technology with more enthusiasm than most other industries, primarily because these new technologies are eminently suited to security applications. Advances in telecommunications, electronics and microprocessors lend themselves directly to security applications.
Mario has kept pace with all of these advances such that Pinkerton Security are the contractor of choice throughout the North-East whenever the most up to date systems are required. Video Surveillance, Access Systems, Duress and Medical Systems are now so advanced and offer so many functions that only a company which specialises in these technologies can give the client the expertise required.
As we are a locally based and locally owned company you can be assured of excellent service. We are the largest security systems installation company in the North East serving the entire North East, Border regions and the Goulburn Valley which encompasses many towns and cities.
Our company has now grown to four full time licensed technicians with four fully equipped modern vans. We also have two staff members manning our office. This allows us to attend to your security concerns when you need us.
With the evolution of electronics and telecommunications, the security industry has been presented with a horizon free platform to grow and expand.  As well as installing security systems the company also installs CCTV (cameras), access systems, medical alarms and strongly promotes control room monitoring to A1 Graded facilities.
It is for these reasons that Pinkerton Security have the largest client base throughout the region and offer the best service to all clients - domestic, commercial or industrial.
Pinkerton Security is a BOSCH CERTIFIED PARTNER supplying and installing all BOSCH products. With such a reputable supplier of equipment the quality to you is assured.
