Press Release – For Immediate Release:The PLS Protective Explosion – Cincy Cop’s Security Company Expands Locally, Statewide – Press Release by Andy Hemmer
Cincinnati security company PLS Protective Services expands with new hometown HQ, new jobs across Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Mansfield
Started by a former cop, high-quality security services for corporate, residential.
New Groesbeck headquarters for PLS Protective more than doubles current PLS company office.
Cincy native Paul L. Smith Jr. worked at several local police agencies, trained at DEA.
But Ohio will do.
Early next year, the security services started in 2004 ago by the former Cincinnati-area cop will move into a new headquarters, more than doubling its space and functionality, while simultaneously opening new markets across Ohio in Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland, having opened in Mansfield earlier this Fall.
“What we’re finding is an opportunity for PLS Protective Services to provide high-quality, responsive security services,” said Smith, a former police officer for several Cincinnati departments who has trained with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
PLS Protective Services is currently relocating from its West Galbraith Road headquarters, a cramped storefront operation that has served it well, to a new office that provides more corporate and administrative space, as well as parking facilities for PLS security vehicles.
The new facility at 8263 Clara Avenue will officially open by the end of the year.
“We’ve been scouting Greater Cincinnati for the perfect type of facility to accommodate our growing business model, and what we found was this nice little place right across the street,” said Smith.
Most of the PLS staff is certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA). All have real-life, in-depth experience providing an array of security options for shopping center and office/medical facilities; apartment buildings, HUD properties, air parks and community airports, construction sites, warehouses and educational campuses.
Personal security services are also available, as well as corporate accounts.
