The Buzz Magazines


We recently hired Praetorian Protective Services for a company anniversary party with over 500 guests, including clients, community representatives and prominent residents. We wanted to ensure the safety and security of our guests without there being an obvious security presence. Praetorian provided seven professional security personnel, all dressed appropriately to blend in with our guests and the evening went off without an incident, from the valet service to guest check-in until our final guest left. Praetorian provided courteous, professional service from start to finish and were extremely accommodating and easy work with. I would highly recommend them for any event.

Nicole Murphy introducing  Destiny Moscato Wines at Zest

We've used Praetorian Protective Services for several years now.  Our event produced high-quality lifestyle culinary, wine and craft beer events.  With events of this type, it's important to have a professional, well-polished crew that can get the job done and have guests, community representatives, politicians and patrons feel welcome and important while at the same time having a clear line of what and who is allowed in certain areas.


The Praetorian crew makes this happen seamlessly.  They are always courteous, professional, dependable and responsive both in the pre-planning as well as on site.  Their pricing is fair - especially given the quality they provide.


We look forward to working with Praetorian again with our future protective services and security needs.  They are outstanding!

We recently used Praetorian for an event we co-hosted with ABIP which had several restricted areas. The security guards were fantastic. Not only were they extremely attentive in making sure the VIP areas were segregated, but they were very accommodating to the patrons that didn't have VIP access (rather than acting curt or hostile). I was very impressed by their level of professionalism and wholeheartedly recommend their services

Chester Pitts Strike Out for the Arts Event

Praetorian Protective Services Corp.'s professional style is a breath of fresh air. From detailed, pre-event assessments to the impeccable day-of service, PPSC has become the first company I turn to when looking for security for my events. Thank you to the entire team for going above and beyond to ensure the safety of all guests.

Our non¬profit organization was looking for security services for our annual fundraiser.  We were looking for a company that was professional, easy to work with and reliable.  We found all those qualifications and more in Praetorian Protective Services Corp.  The team came to the venue ahead of time to map out their plan for the event and paid attention to all the small details.  The entire team went above and beyond our expectations.  We would defiantly recommend this  company to anyone looking for security.  PPSC is the best!

“Love to Give Back Affair", benefiting Love146


I hired Praetorian Protective Services when I held a large charity event in my private residence.  I wanted my personal items secure, but with it being an elegant event, I wanted the security to fit in with the surroundings.  A couple of weeks prior to the fundraiser, Mr Franco and his team came out to tour the house and discuss my needs, which areas would be off limits etc. On the day of the event, they showed up on time and dressed in suits... they looked like the Men In Black!  They were extremely professional and kept an eye on things I didn't even ask them to.  I will be using their services for charity events or any event where security is a priority.

Praetorian Protective Services have been supplying us with security guards for months and we couldn't be happier. They are very professional, flexible, always on time and they have constantly managed to accommodate our last minute requests. We do not feel like we are a business client, but rather part of their family. We highly recommend them for any security needs, you will not be disappointed!
