Summit partners with you to make sure the right security solution is in place. We have a solid bench of officers because we treat officers like we’d like to be treated — which has led to strong relationships and a nationwide network of 60,000+ officers eager to support our customers with white-glove security solutions.Learn More
The Summit Journey
How we started
Summit Founder Chris White started Innovative Surveillance Solutions (ISS) in 2006 after coordinating off-duty as a deputy at his department. For 10 years, ISS specialized in safety, security and investigations serving primarily the oil and gas industry. After juggling a lot of off-duty jobs, he determined there had to be a better and more efficient way to coordinate off-duty that was also beneficial to the officers working.
As the business began to grow, ISS evolved to form Athos Group in 2016, focusing on the off-duty law enforcement industry specifically. Athos quickly became a leader in managed services providing businesses with off-duty officers, serving a variety of industries and clients seeking to use off-duty officers for physical security.
The Launch of Summit
Athos then made a strategic transition to become a tech innovator and market maker to continue to help connect law enforcement with the communities they serve. In 2021, Athos Group launched Summit Off Duty Services, building a dedicated team to help Summit scale, grow and continue to provide the highest level of service to their clients.
A Leader in Security
For over 15 years, businesses - small and large - have relied on Summit to tend to every detail of their off-duty officer security detail. Summit continues to serve their clients by providing a full suite of physical security expertise and by placing uniformed officers in businesses across the country. They are known for delivering reliable security solutions and peace of mind for business owners.
At the start of 2021, Athos rebranded and launched its off-duty managed services business as Summit Off Duty Services. It assembled one of the most dynamic leadership teams, with deep roots in security and law enforcement, to support clients and grow the business.Learn More
