Johnson Security Bureau, Inc. has been providing professional transport, guard, patrol and protective services for the past fifty four years. Based in the Bronx, Johnson Security was founded in 1962 in New York State. As a third generation, family-owned and operated enterprise, Johnson Security has established an impeccable record of providing our clients with peace of mind. The firm achieves this through a diligently screened, thoroughly trained, security force that embodies a genuine concern for the safety of the employees and visitors, as well as for the safe guarding of the locations we secure.
Wilbert T. Johnson, a former NYPD police officer, and his wife Dorothy, a retired NYC educator, founded Johnson Security Bureau, Inc. in their family home. Wilbert oversaw the operations and Dorothy managed the company finances until Wilbert’s death in 1975. Under Dorothy’s leadership, Johnson Security became the only security agency in the metropolitan New York area whose chief executive was a minority female.
Following his time in public service as a New York State Assemblyman representing the 76th Assembly District in the Bronx, Charles Johnson joined his mother in managing the business in 1983. The tandem spent the next two decades growing Johnson Security Bureau, Inc. into the preferred security services provider of several federal, state, and city agencies, as well as many private organizations. That growth remained steady until the untimely death of Charles Johnson Sr. in 2008. Shortly before his passing, Charles’ children, Charles Jr. and Jessica Johnson assumed control of Johnson Security.
