Blue Star Security was established in 2009 by Chicago Police Officers Anthony Varchetto and Jeffrey Salvetti. Our team consists of state-certified law enforcement professionals who provide our clientele with the highest standards in security. Blue Star Security employs hundreds of active and retired law enforcement officers in the Chicago area. Our dedicated team proudly serves Fortune 500 companies as well as small businesses and individuals.

Blue Star Security offers a full range of security and investigative services and has earned accolades as a trusted leader in the security industry. Our highly-trained security officers respond rapidly and efficiently to each assignment and maintain excellent relationships with our clients.

Blue Star Security’s scope and variety of available services has expanded significantly since Security Services Holdings LLC (dba Protos Security), the leading tech-enabled managed security services provider in North America, announced that they acquired Blue Star Security. Protos Security, a portfolio company of Southfield Capital, expands its service offering and the value to its customer base with the acquisition of Blue Star Security. The transaction closed on September 19, 2022. This partnership allows Blue Star Security and Protos to service all of the United States as well as Canada.

Our team of law enforcement officers are simply the most qualified security agents in the industry. Blue Star Security is committed to exceeding our clientele’s expectations and providing unparalleled protective services for each assignment.
