PHOENIX– An Arizona-based security company has opened a new operations and training facility in Phoenix, the business announced Tuesday.

Windom Security Strategies Today’s 4,800-square-foot facility is located at 4914 E. McDowell Road.

The building contains seven offices, one dispatch room, one large training room and a weight room. The expanded parking lot is capable of housing the company’s fleet of 18 security cars.

Since the new facility has significantly expanded the space in which the company can operate, Windom hopes to not only maintain their standard of quality security guards, but the company also seeks to provide comprehensive training programs for law enforcement apprentices.

“We are excited to support Windom Security Strategies Today’s growth with the opening of the Windom Security Central Operations and Training Center,” said Windom Security CEO Dylan Vicha in a press release.

“Not only will this allow us to continue to expand our private security services, it gives us additional space for training, which is critical to helping us maintain our team of highly skilled and capable security guards. We also look forward to sharing this space with local law enforcement as part of our strong partnership with Valley police and sheriff’s departments.”

The new Windom Security Central Operations and Training Center will partner with local police departments in order to provide training programs and dispatcher services.

In addition to providing training services for new security guards and law enforcement apprentices, the facility will also serve as a permanent office for 10 employees, as well as a hub for security guards, dispatchers and supervisors that work throughout the day.

Windom Security Strategies Today is currently hiring part-time and full-time guards at a rate that is 25% higher than the industry average according to the press release. Their positions also offer insurance options for employees.
