Many seasonal and year-round residents have something in common with the numerous businesses and entertainment venues they frequent. None of them give safety much thought. There’s no need to since they all rely upon O’Linn Security, Inc. to give them peace of mind.
Richard (Dick) O’Linn founded O’Linn Executive Security Service of Palm Springs, Inc. in 1981.

“Our name is on the shirt, so we take a lot of pride in what we put out there,” says daughter Kimberly O’Linn, who in recent years has taken over day-to-day operations of the company.

At O’Linn, we place a high premium on education.” It not only includes the extensive training of and continuing education for their own personnel, all of whom are thoroughly background checked and licensed, but also extends to their customers. O’Linn Security works with homeowner associations, for example, to educate residents on how to take simple precautionary measures to make sure crime doesn’t happen to them.
