Valle Services is a professional security company, event staffing management, and protection agency based in Chicago, Illinois.   

With over 40 years of dedicated service, Valle Services offers comprehensive and effective staff and protection for any type of organization, business or event.  Options Include armed security, unarmed security, mobile patrol, off duty police and military, ushers, guest services, and a variety of event staff and personal and individual protection services.

Valle provides a complete security package – with highly trained and equipped staff, armed with the latest technologies.  Our approach starts by learning our client’s goals and tailoring our solutions to their individual needs. 

Security officers are often the first line of defense in protecting some of the most important areas of our communities and businesses.  Festival venues, sporting events, concert, construction sites, places of work, shopping malls, airports, factories, and campuses often rely on security officers for protection, and our management team has vast experience in this field.

Although the services we offer change from venue to venue, from event management to workplace safety, theft prevention, and 24-hour security solutions, the one constant is our focus on customer satisfaction.  Our team members receive extensive training to ensure we deliver the best experience possible to fans and patrons, as well as business owners and corporations.  It is this commitment to client care and maintaining a comfortable and safe environment that has helped us reach the level of success we enjoy today.

We are engaged in event staffing, patrolling and security related services serving the premier venues throughout the United States including all the Chicago Park District properties, Wrigley Field, Soldier Field, McCormick Place, Millennium Park, and many others. We also work with multiple other businesses, professional and collegiate venues to provide security, parking, and event management services as required. All of our services are scalable, which allows clients to stay with Valle as their needs grow and become more robust or as seasonality dictates.

Valle Services’ local management team has decades of experience in event management and security services.

Our founder, Hector Garcia, launched and transformed Valle Services into one of the most trusted event staffing and security companies in the Chicagoland area. He has since expanded the business to provide services nationally.  Valle Services staffs the best of the best.  We routinely coordinate all aspects of our clients’ event and venue management needs. Valle Services’ experience translates into a powerful benefit for the client with a detail oriented management team and a staff ready for any situation.
