Star Security Training

1891 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11233

Since we opened our Brooklyn training center doors in 2009, we've provided the NY state mandated security guard training for over 25,000 students. Quality instruction, course offerings 6 days a week, recruiting relationships with leading security firms...these are reasons why our students keep coming back for annual license renewal training. As retired NYC police officers and managers of security firms, our instructors engage students with real life experiences and useful tips on succeeding in the security guard industry. We help newly licensed guards get experience through recruitment relationships we've developed with top security firms.

What year did you open your business and why?
I had always dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur. I researched start-up ideas that would combine my 10 years of teaching experience with my graduate degree in business management. Moreover, I wanted a business that would be focused on helping an underserved community. I identified the security training industry as an area that would face booming demand since 9/11. After researching the New York State requirements for opening a licensed security guard training center and completing an extensive market study, I launched Star Security Training in January 2009. Today, I take pride in having provided the necessary training for more than 30,000 individuals to start careers in the security guard industry, and having developed one of NYC’s leading security guard training centers.

Why did you select this location?
Although it has changed over the past 10 years, Bed-Stuy is a neighborhood that is relatively close to the neighborhoods where my target audience lives. Being on Fulton Street and near the Ralph Avenue subway stop makes it an easy commute for my students. The affordable rent was also a consideration at the time.

What do you expect the impact(s) of the Love Your Local grant funding to be on your business?
By adding more classes and expanding my curriculum beyond security guard training, I will be better able to establish a clear plan for sustained future revenue growth, requiring the hiring of additional employees. I’m excited about updating my company’s overall brand to help us compete, and to help security guards expand their career options.
