Our experience in contract administration and support operations ensures effective management, contract compliance and superior system visibility.



Custom Protective Services (CPS) was formed in 2006 and made an immediate impact on the security industry in the New York City area, providing quality security officers, and management to numerous class “A” office buildings in the metropolitan area. CPS quickly established ourselves as a company that put a premium on our clients, our people and quality of service. In 2007 our reputation had grown as had our business, causing us to expand to Connecticut, where we service over 1.6 million square feet of class “A” office space. CPS continues to grow with new offices recently opened in New Jersey. CPS has combined our extensive law enforcement/security background, disciplined management approach and operating experience to deliver a highly qualified team to provide unarmed and armed security and supervision.

CPS has recently partnered with John Cutter Investigations Inc. to offer a variety of additional services to our clients, including due diligence, background checks, investigations and surveillance.
