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, now operating under Protos Security’s Specialized Off Duty Division, has significantly expanded its scope and range of services since Security Services Holdings LLC (dba Protos Security), the leading tech-enabled managed security services provider in North America, announced its acquisition of Blue Star Security. Protos Security, a portfolio company of Southfield Capital, enhances its service offerings and adds value to its customer base through this acquisition. The transaction, finalized on September 19, 2022, enables Blue Star Security and Protos to extend their services across the United States and Canada.


We provide our clientele with security solutions that are customized to meet their needs and executed to the highest possible standards. 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. This commitment to excellence has earned Blue Star Security a superior reputation in the security and investigation industry.
