Serving the Lake Norman community and beyond, since 1963.

Initially founded by Ralph & Christine Brown as Lake Norman Security Patrol, Inc., Ralph learned the importance of security while serving as a military policeman in the U.S. Army in the 1950s. When Ralph came home to Iredell County after the completion of his military service, he recognized a need for residential and commercial patrol services. Soon after, he discovered that while patrolling did the job. There was an even better way to protect people 24 hours a day - electronic security systems. Lake Norman Security Systems was born.
