Active Security Solutions
Active Security Solutions began as a small executive protection firm in 1980 in Beverly Hills, California, offering protection to celebrities and dignitaries. President Patricia Donaldson is recognized as operating the first woman owned security firm in the State of California. The business relocated in 2002 to the City of Hawthorne and began working with numerous corporations, landing major projects, and training other entities in the security business.
An increased need of security guards, and the positive reputation of the One-Stop Center, led Active Security Solutions to contact the South Bay One-Stop Center. Using the reimbursement incentives from the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program, Active Security Solutions continues to achieve its hiring needs.
Patricia Donaldson was quoted, “One of the best decisions that I have made in my business was to be in partnership with the SBWIB. I will always utilize their services because they saved me a lot of money in advertisement and through the On-The-Job Training program in hiring local job seekers.” Active Security Solutions has hired over fifty participants and will continue using SBWIB services.
