Security Guards In Maryland Like You Never Seen Them Before




A community church in Hyattsville, Maryland had become victim to robberies when they gave free gifts to their parishioners during the holiday season.

Some of the gifts they gave their parishioners were gift cards, new clothing, cell phones, kids toys and even cash. It was a nice gesture that personally touched their parishioners and many people in the community.

The good citizens of the community were not the only ones to notice the charity and good graces of the small church in Hyattsville, the criminals also noticed. Parishioners were getting mugged walking from the front door of the church to their car with their new gifts. Crafty criminals even attended the services of the small church. If the criminals didn't win the door prize that they wanted when the church gave out prizes, they tried to take the newly given gift away from the recipient right there in the church during services.

It is hard to believe what a person is capable of doing to another. It sounds like a story that took place in a far away country or war zone. These incidents and many more like it occur almost everyday in Maryland and throughout the United States.

The church that was encountering these problems sought out the services of a serious private security company in Maryland named "Public Security LLC".

Ready to confront any threat, Public Security LLC secured the church events with their armed Officers and using their high visibility vehicles. All which are fitted with dashboard camcorders to document encounters with suspected criminals.

Needless to say, the criminals that would prey on the members of this church have moved on to a more easy target somewhere else.
The company is led by a former member of the U.S. Secret Service, Barry Donadio.

He formed the company after serving an honorable career in multiple agencies. He knows what he is doing when it comes to deterring crime and anti-terrorism.

"Mission accomplished in Hyattsville!", said Mr. Donadio. "Criminals have a choice when dealing with Public Security LLC. "Get charged, get arrested and get ultimately incarcerated or they can move on and away from our clients and their assets. We are ready for what ever decision they make." "If they perpetrate a crime, we will move to have them prosecuted."

After the introduction of this company into the complex issues of the church, there were no longer any problems. No more robberies and no more crimes. Parishioners were able to practice their faith safely without any worries.

Public Security LLC has protected many large scale events, churches, businesses and even homes. They even have clients that use their private executive protection services that mimic the Secret Service.

Public Security LLC maintains a sub-station at 203 Romancoke Road, Stevensville, Maryland 21666. Staff have advised that access to the sub-station is by appointment only.

This is because we have a duty to act in the best interest of the public safety and order."

Mr. Donadio also said; "My company is always there for those who need us" " We are sensitive to our clients needs and we are an effective means to deter criminal activity."

They have provided executive protection to celerities and politicians in the D.C. metropolitan area. Most recently, they successfully provided security for the 22,000 participant 10k bay bridge run.

Public Security LLC has taken interest and an empathetic stance towards local concerns. They have focused their customer services on community needs.

One such venture that has never been before was to have their staff trained to use Narcan. This is a drug that can be administered to persons who may have overdosed on opioids. The training was given in an effort to please public concerns regarding the heroine epidemic on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Public Security LLC will also seek training for its staff to identify animal abuse and neglect. Local citizens have raised concerns regarding the subject and Public Security LLC will do its part in pleasing the public.

Public Security LLC Officers are armed in order to protect their clients and their assets. Vehicles are fitted with dashboard camcorder and Officers have body camcorders.

Barry Donadio's Guard Firm States That Security Cameras Are Not Enough To Stop Crimes



Public Security LLC advises the public not to be deceived into believing that security cameras make you safe.


If you search youtube, you can find countless murders, sexual assaults, robberies and abductions all taking place in the face of a security camera. The cameras did a great job documenting the attacks, but didn't stop the attacks. Criminals know to simply wear a mask and it is business as usual. 

Current public opinion is that once a security camera is installed, they don't have to worry about crime. Security cameras are an excellent supplement and tool. It should be part of your security plan. It should never be your entire security plan and only tool that you are depending on. 

There are security cameras at the White House and other high risk locations.  Without an armed protective force protecting those locations, would those cameras stop anyone? The simple answer is "No". It is the same for your venue or event. 

Clients need armed private security officers to respond to threats against the public. Security Officers take the focus off innocent victims and draw the attention of criminals to them. This allows innocents to flee during an active shooter scenario that we are seeing so often these days nationwide.

Chances are, once you have armed Security Officers on your site, criminals will choose a softer target, one without armed security.
