  • Kentucky.

    As no one here probably knows, later this year I am planning to move out to the State of Kentucky. With that, I am considering trying to start my own Security Company out there... however; I cannot seem to find any information on licensing, insurances, requirements, etc... from the state website.

    I have decided upon the name "Kentucky Merchant Patrol" (Pending that it's legal) and I have designed up what I want my patrol cars to somewhat look like.


    Im wondering if anyone has any information, or resources on where I can get information about starting up a security company in KY.

    Thanks.

    What about Daniel Boone Security ?

    Loved that show as a kid ........ too bad it was 10 years older when I got to see it and I hated my brother for singing "Daniel Boone was a Goon".

    Best of luck and my Racoon skin hat size is 7 1/2 thanks.

              Where at in KY? im up in northern ky, and believe it or not, the county executives apparently have say in uniformed security and all that.. From car designs to uniform colors. KY has weird laws when it comes to security, I liked OH much better..

                  In absence of state preemption, a county or city could (and will) regulate security services to either make lots of money or are completely useless to the end user, ensuring that police services (with money going to the city) are used in the guard's place.

                      I'm not going to start a true blue business plan until I actually confirm I'm going to make this move. However; I plan to service roving security patrols more-so than on-site officers (to start). As far as that goes, I'm probably going to accept any potential client.

                      Once I get enough business going and can establish my name, I will probably start batting for contracts such as the hospitals, government offices, etc... which as of current, do not have any form of security.

                        Lawson,

                        Make sure you do some good research on the area to include it's economy, future growth, etc. Also be sure to research your competition (if any) in the area. I can tell you from experience, getting a Patrol Service up and running in a smaller town/city is not an easy task!

                        *Maybe research some larger surrounding areas.

                        We have been up and running for almost 2 years now and it has been a fight every step of the way. We have finally reached a point where we can sit back and breathe (just a little).

                        I am typing this in the front seat of my patrol car right now, if that tells you anything. It can be rewarding but it takes a helluva lot of work, patience, discipline, dedication, and MONEY to get one off the ground.



                        Be careful!!! and most of all GOOD LUCK!!!!

                          CAP is right.. Ky and OH seem saturated with security contract services.. But none of them seem paticularly good except in house or federal contracts.. With a community of 24,000+ if I remember right, is there much down there to keep the business going? As far as hospitals, government offices and the like.. Ky is in a hiring freeze and most state agencies arent allowed to spend money till july, trying to make up for a 63 million dollar budget gap.. The combined services government buildings up here have security.. But the independent ones dont, that I have seen. Hospitals are staffed with in house, bigger school districts have in house security and contract with local police. Its a tough market around here. I just seen one company come online recently, seems VERY basic roaming patrol.. Targeting the home building industry and industrial parks.. With copper thefts and the related going on in these places nightly, that might be a good place to start looking for business..
