After successfully closing out numerous investigations, it became evident that there was a growing trend of internal theft. Clients began requesting that Intercept provide security guards services in addition to private investigative services. In 1992, Intercept opened the doors of its security guard agency and began fielding armed and unarmed security officers. Word quickly spread and Intercept began getting requests to handle private security and protection details, as well as security guards for major outdoor special events.
In 1995: Intercept became the official security guard agency for the Fort Lauderdale Air & Sea show. With more than 4 million attendees in 2003, it was deemed the largest outdoor venue in the world. Along with uniformed security guard responsibilities for the Air Show, Intercept was tasked each year to provide personal executive protection to the top flag officers attending the event, including the Secretary of the Navy. Intercept has since worked numerous security details for all branches of the military, providing every type of service from static security guard services to high end executive protection details.
Intercept has conducted multiple executive protection and body guard details to include the grand openings of the ESPN Zones in Baltimore, Chicago and New York, protecting celebrities and VIP’s. Intercept also worked for Disney to provide personal executive protection agents and bodyguards for celebrities and general uniformed security guards for the Disney Quest grand opening in Chicago.
In 2005: Intercept deployed numerous armed security guards to New Orleans to assist with the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Intercept has since deployed numerous personal protection teams globally to assist with disaster stricken areas.
