We had a large family reunion at a community park and the city required us to have private security offices on-site during the party. We contacted Delta and they provides us with two security guards for 8 hours for only $300! Their rate was way lower than anyone else we contacted and they were very polite and professional.

    I have been using First Security Guards for one and a half year on numerous sites we have contracted, for building houses and flats etc. The service these guys gave is simply incredible and unmatchable with the other security services.

    Thank you for the great service. Your employee showed up a little early and did a great job. I will recommend your company to anyone who needs security guard service. I informed the community center of you and they are going to add you to their list of vendors. Thanks again, Hugh

    We had overnight outdoor security for items that we could not bring in everyday during an event. We do have many persons passing through our facility in the evening and early morning hours. Security arrived on time, checked in with our departing custodian and was present upon arrival of the morning custodian. All went well.

    Working with Daniel Acosta was truly a pleasure. We used them to help facilitate guests for a private wedding celebration of ~150 guests in SF. What can I say - we were impressed. Their level of professionalism is far superior to any other security service we've received. They not only called us a few days before to confirm the logistics, but also the day of to ensure everything would be planned successfully. The guard (Mr. Lee) was extremely courteous, responsive, and professional. Thanks Daniel Acosta Corporation! Highly recommend!


    I am an experienced server, hostess, security guard and customer service representative. Let's suffice it to say that I love any job where helping people or seeing people happy and enjoying themselves is involved. I am reliable and punctual. I work well as a team player or alone. I have no problem with hard work or pressure. I am charismatic and self-motivated, although an extra push when needed never hurts. So if you are looking for a service with a smile or if required a curt nod, you need not to look any further!


    I protect customer's properties and safety and then maintain the client's security needs. That's watching all areas, checking for fire, alarming, monitoring, etc. I want tell you that I worked at a lot of places including Dell computer security room, Oakland port (US railroad company), Ross, Safeway, Samsung Lawyer Team Protect, Tesla, etc.
