Get to Know the RAC Difference

In 1947, Samuel Boggs founded Richmond Alarm (then called Southern Burglar Alarm Company). Over the years, Richmond Alarm grew and became Richmond Alarm Companies—a single brand comprised of 3 different locations in Richmond, Hampton Roads and Lynchburg.

As the largest local security company in Virginia, RAC offers all the advantages of a big, national brand. But there are a few crucial differences between us and national brands.

What separates RAC from big, national brands:

We’re a small company at heart.

We may be the largest local security company in Virginia but we’ll always be small enough to give you personalized attention. At the end of the day, you’re our neighbor—and that’s how we’ll treat you.

We take care of our own, so that they take better care of you.

Because we take care of our employees, they stick around. In fact, the average RAC employee stays with us for 20 years. That means, when you call you’ll always get an experienced employee who is happy to take care of your security needs.

We’re invested in local security—even when we’re not in uniform.

Securing our hometown isn't just a paycheck—it's a passion. In fact, when they're not on the clock, you can find RAC staff members and leaders serving on local crime panels.
