In 2023, Sunstates Security celebrates 25 years of providing security personnel services. In March 1998, President Glenn Burrell left his homeland of England to pursue his dream of living in the United States. Glenn arrived, bringing 20 years of experience at Scotland Yard, ready to instill the same high standards of honesty, integrity, and trust into his company.
Headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, Sunstates Security is a privately held contract security service provider, employing over 5,000 individuals, a number that has doubled in the past five years. Sunstates offers services nationwide and constantly expands and adds new regions. With the continued growth, Sunstates was recently identified as one of the top 10 largest security providers in North America.
In 2021 and 2022, Sunstates Security was recognized by Forbes as a Best Mid-Sized Employer. “Taking care of our employees is a fundamental part of who we are as a company,” says Glenn. “The fact that our employees approve of the culture and atmosphere we have tried to create and would recommend us to their family and friends means a great deal to us.”
Additionally, in 2022 The OSPAs awarded Sunstates Security as Outstanding Contract Security Company at the ASIS GSX Awards Reception in Atlanta, GA.
