Our Story
Overview

Risk management and security is not just what we do — it’s our calling.

We trace our roots back to 1850, when Allan Pinkerton founded Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency. During our rich history, we’ve created the forerunner to the U.S. Secret Service, hired America’s first woman detective, and have remained the industry leader in developing innovative security and risk management solutions for national and international organizations.

Today, we combine our 170 years of legacy and institutional knowledge with technology informed by our expertise to protect and create value for our clients across the globe. From brains to boots, we purposefully infuse integrity, vigilance, and excellence into our work. Our connected network of resources allows us to learn, anticipate, and deliver new and specialized solutions that span the spectrum of our clients’ needs, from strategy to implementation. No matter when, no matter where, we pride ourselves on being there for you.

Being a Pinkerton agent means we are your trusted partner. Because at Pinkerton, we never sleep.
