A New Chapter in Our Story  

Over a year of incredible growth, an extraordinary family of brands has come together to form what will be known as Briscoe Protective – with Worldwide Security, SCAN Security, Bellringer Security, and GC Alarm falling within the Briscoe Protective umbrella. We are now the largest privately held security company in the NYC-Metro area and the 30th largest security organization in the United States, based on Security Magazine’s SDM rankings.  All of this growth allows us to better serve you while still maintaining excellent, localized customer service. 

Focused on both commercial and residential fire and security, our brand family is proud to employ more than 150 staff members and to serve customers ranging from Westchester through the Five Boroughs of NYC, and all across Long Island. 

There’s a sense of pride having 161 years combined industry experience. Providing life-safety and property-safety and protection is a big responsibility – one our team takes seriously. So we leave you with this pledge – to work tirelessly day-in and day-out to maintain a high standard of protection and customer satisfaction so that we can better serve you, our valued customers. 

Thank you for entering into this new chapter with us.
