Don't Wait for Crime to happen


Lamont Martinez

About the Founder, President & CEO

Lamont Martinez founded Apogee Security Services, with a combination of industry experience and education. The word Apogee means the highest point. Lamont picked this word to name his company because it stood out and was not commonly used. Lamont got his start in the security business as a security officer more than 25 years ago. Within a year he worked his way up the ranks. At age 19, Lamont became a site supervisor in charge of 26 security officers with Management Safeguard, Inc. From there he continued to work his way up the ranks. He became an Account Manager and took on the huge task of overseeing numerous security accounts throughout a very challenging and competitive market in New York City. Eventually he was promoted to Operations Manager, where he stayed in that position for several years.

Lamont once considered returning to school with the intentions of becoming a Criminal Defense Attorney. That idea quickly changed after the tragic events of 9/11. The events on that day caused Lamont to reevaluate which direction he wanted to go with his career. He had to choose between going to Law school or to continue with his passion and dedication to provide exceptional security service. Either way, Lamont felt it was incumbent upon him to help his country in some capacity in the Criminal Justice arena. He decided to focus on the Security and Law enforcement industry.

Although he already earned a degree in Computer Science, Lamont enrolled in John Jay College of Criminal Justice and earned his B.A. in Criminal Justice. Two years later, he earned his Masters of Science in Administration of Justice and Security from the University of Phoenix. 

After completing his Masters degree, Lamont considered joining the New York City Police Department or the New York City Department of Corrections. In fact, he went through an extensive hiring process with both agencies and was invited to join the New York City Police Department Academy. After giving it further thought and consideration he declined the offer because he felt his true calling was in the Security Industry. He decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia, to pursue his dream of starting Apogee Security Services. 

Lamont Martinez understands the importance of constantly learning and never becoming complacent. He trains his staff to follow his lead as the consummate security professional, remaining ever vigilant and completely focused on providing the best security services for all of his clients.
