According to Mr. Maxwell Bass, the owner and manager of Maximum
Security, his company has decided to give back to the community as part of his company’s philosophy to help those in need. And so this last Mother’s Day, the employees of Maximum Security went on a giving spree throughout the various local communities in St. Kitts.
Bass said the officers were asked to select the most senior person in their community for a food or gift basket, and on Mother’s Day, presentations were made to the elderly persons.
“The initiative is part of an annual community outreach program started by Private Officers International (POI) out of the United States. As a lifelong member of POI I felt obligated to demonstrate the same level commitment here in St. Kitts. The Officers of Maximum Security feel very good to a part of something positive,” said Bass.
Bass also differentiated his company from other private security firms on the island.
“Maximum Security is different to others in terms of our level of professionalism and expertise. We are different in the way we approach business from our uniform appearance to our delivery of services. We ensure that our officers have proper training and is knowledgeable about security matters,” added Bass.
When asked what motivated him to venture into the private security business, Bass indicated that he always wanted to lift the standard of security in St. Kitts and
Nevis and when he left the St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) there was a need for a private security firm to manage security at the Cruise Ship terminal.
Bass said that he is encouraged by the growth and development of the company and that his clients are very pleased with the quality of service his company provides.
“Presently there is a bidding war out there for security jobs but Maximum Security is well placed because of our high level of professionalism and quality service. We are not in the business of providing watchmen. We are long past that stage. Our
Mission Statement clearly states our purpose which is to “enhance professionalism in the private security industry through the establishment of standards,” said Bass.
Mr. Bass has extensive experience in security having served as Security Manager at SCASPA for 15 years. He has received certificates of training from many reputable international organizations including International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) and International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO).
He was praised for his excellent teaching techniques and experience in Maritime Security and Customs and Law Enforcement. He is an expert in the subject matter of ISPS and has attended training courses in Panama and the sub-region.
The office of Maximum Security is located at Stapleton Housing Project, St. Peters.
