We have a long list of happy clients who continue to use our security services for their events, year after year.

Here are some testimonials from just a few.

I would just like to let you know how impressed my staff and I were with your whole team of men!  We can’t say enough good things about them, they were so professional, courteous, helpful and friendly…wow what a great groups of men! I am on many boards for festivals in the Twin Cities, MNFEA, SPFA etc. and I will be shouting your companies praises to all of them.  I also just gave Ryan the head maintenance man at Schmidt Brewery your name and the companies name so that they can use your services throughout the year. Thanks again for everything, I am really glad to have finally found a trustworthy security company.”

This security company is amazing. Couldn’t have gone any better!  The most helpful bunch of guys I have ever had the pleasure of working with.”

–Denny Lasher, Chief Deputy of Crow Wing County, for Brainerd International Raceway.

I have personally worked with Security Specialists since 1999 when they became an integral part of the annual WE Fest, 10,000 Lakes Festival and other events that occur within Becker County. The leadership and staff have exhibited a very professional knowledge in controlling crowds and dealing with serious issues as they arise.”

–Tim Gordon, Becker County Sheriff

“We run the camping, Apple River tubing and the Float Rite Park Amphitheater in Somerset, WI. Security Specialists has been providing their services to us since 1998 and we are very satisfied with their professional service. Our needs have ranged from 2 security guards in the off season to 500 during festivals that draw over 35,000 people. They are prompt, professional and have exceeded all our expectations.”

–Kelly Montpetit, Owner, VP of Operations, Float Rite Park

Taste of Minnesota, a festival over the 4th of July weekend, has attendance of anywhere from 300,00 to 500,000 visitors over a four to six day period. We strive to make this a family event, so security is a top priority. Over the last 8 years we have used Security Specialists as our on-site security and plan to continue to use their services. We enjoy working with them and feel they do a wonderful job for us. They are very willing to make last-minute changes as needed, and do a great job in giving us direction prior to the festival to make sure everything is covered. In addition they work well with our St. Paul Police Department…Security Specialists is an important partner at our festival.
