About Us

Summit Security Services, Inc. was founded in 1976 by the late Richard N. Auletta, a 20-year veteran of the NYPD with a distinguished record of service. Launched initially as an investigative services firm with New York City as its primary service footprint, Richard established several regional offices in the New York metro area, setting Summit on a path toward becoming a full-service security, investigative, and background screening services leader.

Summit is dedicated without compromise to our core values:

For these reasons, Summit has earned the confidence of Fortune 500 firms, major media networks; premier Class A real estate management firms; regional public transportation authorities; international banks and financial services institutions; renowned universities; prominent residential communities; federal, state, and local government agencies; respected law and accounting firms; global technology firms; and major airlines.

Summit’s organically based growth strategy turns on our experience, client responsiveness, and high-quality, cost-effective service. Taking this approach, Summit has grown to become one of the largest firms of its kind in the United States. In addition to our extensive security portfolio – with individual contracts as large as 750,000 annual hours – Summit’s investigative and background screening capabilities are now global.

Summit is a family-owned and -operated company that strikes the perfect balance between big resources and client responsiveness. Contact us at 516.240.2400 or fill out our online contact form so we may discuss the best solution for protecting your peace of mind.
