Our Toledo Office

Ohio security clients are cared for primarily by our metro Detroit branch office, which is a hub of operations for all east Michigan and Buckeye State partners. Ohio has full access to our services with support from Detroit—but who knows… a DK office could be coming to Columbus in the future!

In addition to security management and response, the DK – Troy team is equipped to perform fingerprinting services and receive employees for new hire orientations.

Uniformed Security

Our longest-serving area of service, the DK uniformed security division is our company’s largest and serves a diversity of Toledo industries. DK meticulously screens and trains all unarmed guards to serve the government, energy, education, manufacturing, healthcare, and entertainment sectors, among others. We provide customizable security guard services in Toledo, Ohio and thoughtfully evaluate every security request we receive.

Armed Security

We offer armed security in Toledo, Ohio in addition to our standard uniformed guards. All Ohio-based DK armed staff are licensed to carry firearms and are highly trained to respond in times of threat or emergency. Especially for high-risk organizations in education, healthcare, government, and cannabis, we encourage you to inquire about whether armed security is right for you.

Event Security

Covering duties similar to those of uniformed security guards, DK event staff are assigned to protect entertainment venues of all shapes and sizes. Our event team serves the smallest of gatherings all the way up to multi-day events attended by 100,000+ guests. Our event teams are hospitable, alert, and handle the unpredictable with professionalism.
