I worked for United for three years and recently left to join the Atlanta Police Department. Mr. Rainey recommended me and his connections helped me get hired really quick. I know for a fact that he wasn't run off from the department. He retired with FULL benefits to help start the company. I check stuff out for myself and found out he was nominated for National Officer of the year, was a homicide detective, work the Executive Protection for former Mayor Bill Campbell, worked as a Sgt with Internal Affairs and other high profile assignments. I am not related to him nor owe him something. I just hate when people lie. The two people who posted negative stuff about pay where fired for claiming to be at work and not there and the clients wouldn't pay for the services which they shouldn't have. Unlike them I will say my name and it's N. Anderson. Every officer that worked for the company was fully trained and insured. Don't throw a stone and hide under a rock.

This companies owners are chicken hawks. They prey on people who can't afford lawyers when they don't get paid for months. They have bounced the last three paychecks and some will be evicted because of this. The only problem with the officers working is they have no training.They believe in what they are doing but if something actually happens they will be the ones going to jail. Do not hire this company and never work for this dead beat.

i worked for united protection for a month. after the month i was suppose to get paid you see they( the owner kevin b rainey)holds two weeks of you pay no reason was given.well the bottom line is mr. rainey left town on my due pay day and would not return my calls. this happened on the 11th on june today is the 15th and i have stiil not heard from the owner. this has happened time and time again according to former employee's. the owner is a former atlanta police officer with an unsavory past(forced to resign)when i was working on a armed site he had a convicted felon( 7 yrs for drugs) working along side me. he has given officers that could not afford a real weapon, air pistols to put in their holster so that the client can think the officer was armed.a horrible company.the one an only rating prior to mine was probably entered by the owner

We used this company for our New Years Eve event. They were very professional, ON TIME and looked sharp and crisp in their uniforms. The officers reported 30 minutes before and stayed 30 minutes after without charging any additional charges.
