Founded on solid security principles

Bates Security was founded in 1984 by Sonny Bates, a former police officer. He designed our company to protect homes and businesses using the principles of solid security and customer service. Those principles are why we were awarded the Commerce Lexington's Small Business of the Year in 2013.

We provide security to over 6,000 homes and businesses in Central & Northern Kentucky, including Lexington, Georgetown, Nicholasville, Winchester, Frankfort, Richmond and everywhere in between.

Protecting the protectors
