Signal 88 Security
Shea Degan, a sheriff’s deputy, started Signal 88 in 2003. As a law enforcement officer, Degan saw the way criminals were able to exploit the lack of after-hours security at offices, warehouses, and other places of business. Shea’s original security force consisted of solely off-duty officers, but eventually expanded to include trained civilians in order to be able to offer extended hours and more affordable rates to customers. Franchised in 2008, there are now some 80 Signal 88 locations in the United States.
