Guardian has been helping keep Pittsburgh safe for 70 years.
Guardian Protection was born here in 1950, when we focused on installing security systems for jewelry stores. Decades later, we operate many branches across multiple states providing residential and commercial security for hundreds of thousands of customers. And still, Pittsburgh feels like home.

Burglary, Fire, and Life Safety in Pittsburgh
Life in Pittsburgh is great, but no matter where you live, property crime and burglary can be a risk.
The latest research from the City of Pittsburgh Bureau of Police reports that 48% of all burglaries in the city were forced entry in residences. On average, five burglaries took place every day in 2016 in Pittsburgh.
Even in the safest of cities, homes still need protection from the unforeseeable. Everyday activities can put your home at risk of fire, smoke, and carbon monoxide (CO) from cooking to using electrical outlets, home appliances, and candles.
- On average, seven people die in home fires in the U.S. per day
- 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms, or no working smoke alarms
- Every year, at least 430 people die in the U.S. from accidental CO poisoning
