Who Are We

Since 1999, CYA Security Services have provided a qualified alternative to the status quo in the private security industry: to give Oregon’s alcohol servers and event promoters an option under the law to provide certified, trained and capable door and floor staff and an increased level of protection from legal and civil liability while helping to ensure safe and profitable operations.


To coin a phrase, we cover your assets. We protect your premises, your clientele, your event and your reputation from individuals and circumstances that can negatively impact an event or the public attending it. We attempt to mitigate our client’s liability from Visibly Intoxicated Persons (VIPs), underage drinking, altercations, unwanted clientele, and other, unforeseen situations that may impact the venue or event.


We do this through proper training, education, communication, attention to detail and an unparalleled devotion to executing our duties above and beyond our client’s expectations.


We know that the dynamic of crowd interaction and alcohol creates unique opportunities for potentially negative occurances. These circumstances require an event team with a special set of tools and experience not found within other companies who's primary responsibility is patrol or door checks. A uniformed security presence at a club or concert can effectively destroy the atmosphere that owners and promoters strive to create. And lets face it; all too often private security officers work hard to earn the Barney Fife reputation that the industry has. That is where Cover Your Assets Security Services is different from the rest. Our staff receives better training for State Certification than the uniformed “rent-a-cops” plus we provide a unique Alcohol Awareness Module based upon OLCC regulations, in-depth ID checking training, and highly specialized self defense and control tactics training that is recognized by the State as Legally, Tactically, and Medically defensible techniques.
