Our story

Our Lancaster-based small enterprise has been serving the Central Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland security and fire alarm needs of homes and businesses since 2001. Founded by top executives at an area company that was bought out several times by larger corporations, we realized that bigger wasn’t always better – especially for the customer.

Collectively, we combine decades of industry knowledge with a sincere commitment to delivering personalized, responsive service to all of our customers.

Being a leader in the security industry means being good neighbors. To that end, our company supports several community and charitable organizations to demonstrate our sincere commitment to the communities we serve.

For majority of cases, our technicians are no more than a one-hour drive from our customers, so we can respond quickly to service issues and other needs.

All our employees are background checked, fully licensed, and always carry a form of identification so you can trust who they say they are.

Our employees are factory trained and certified at Choice Security Services so they know our products and services, better than anyone.

In Loving Memory Of James Joseph Durkin

It is with great sadness that Choice Security announces the unexpected passing of one of our founders and chief executive officer, James J. Durkin. To all who knew Jim, he was an exceptional person, a community leader, and a great friend. Jim leaves behind a wonderful family, wife Mary Rose, son Jimmy, and daughter Caihlin. He was dependable, conscientious, and would always go the extra mile to help anyone in need. He will be greatly missed.

Co-founder Ray Bear will assume the duties of chief executive office. All the employees at Choice Security are committed to continuing the outstanding customer service that Choice customers have come to expect, and equally committed to following through on the legacy that Jim and Ray began when they founded Choice Security in 2001.
