There are times when individuals who are specifically trained to provide security services are needed for special services. We provide officers for such special details as needed. Fidelity has the ability to train officers specifically for specialized work, and to supervise such officers to ensure a successful service is provided to our clients.
Providing highly trained officers for special duties that require high levels of restraint, professionalism and judgement, require programs which train officers to a very high level of proficiency. Because Fidelity maintains the largest private security training academy in Northeastern Illinois, with instructors who hold law enforcement trainer certifications, this is possible for us to achieve.

only visible uniformed presence on the streets during the NATO Summit.
Fidelity Security excels at providing officers that produce in high stress and high risk situations with professionalism and restraint. We recently celebrated the outstanding work our special details did during the NATO Summit. Fidelity Security Officers were on the streets, in uniform, protecting news crews that moved through the crowds of protestors. In addition, our standard security officers were also there, inside retail stores and businesses on State Street and Michigan Avenue, protecting the business, financial and retail establishments along protest and staging routes.
When asked by one of the protesters, "Are you guys 'Department of Homeland Security", one of our officers smiled, and responded, "No, I work for Fidelity Security". During the five days that special services operated in Downtown Chicago, our officers suffered no injuries, and due to their professionalism, did not have to make any arrests. Our officers' training in using officer presence and verbal de-escalation skills allowed them to control and diffuse potentially dangerous situations.
Examples of such Special Services include:
- Neighborhood Vehicle Patrols
- Neighborhood Foot Patrols
- Crowd Control/Demonstration Management
- Anti - Robbery Details For Businesses
- Executive Protection & VIP Protective Details
- Violence in the Workplace Special Details
