STT was founded in 1973 by Dave Rusch, a former police officer. After a brief career in undercover work he decided to set out on his own, filling what he felt was a lack of quality services available to businesses at that time.
In its first few years, STT provided mostly investigative and retail loss prevention services. Grocery stores and other retailers comprised most of the companies work in addition to worker’s compensation investigations and undercover assignments. As the company quickly developed strong reputation, organic growth ensued at a rapid pace. STT’s offerings quickly expanded to include security personnel at hospitals, shopping centers, and industrial locations. This new division of the business expanded rapidly and across the country, wherever clients had needs. This geographic growth also opened many new opportunities for the business in new vertical markets which it expanded into.
Since then, the business has continuously adapted to ever changing security challenges, always remaining focused on delivering great services and taking good care of our employees. We continue to build on our foundation of high standards, trust and on-going partnership with not only our clients, but first and foremost our employees. We know without happy employees, we will not have happy clients.
In 2017, three long term employees of the company purchased the business from Dave upon retirement. Since that time the business has added many resources, technologies, new clients and service offerings including a training and consulting division. Our mission remains the same: foster an employee centered culture, have great integrity and partner for the long-term with our clients. We are proud to remain a privately owned and operated business trusted by hundreds of clients across the USA.
