Turner Security was started originally as a private investigation company in 1970 by Don Turner. He was friends with the chief of the Fresno Police Department who suggested Don start a security company as well.
Don started the security company in 1972 and began providing security services essentially for the police department at events such as concerts at the convention center. It allowed them to free up officers to patrol the streets instead of being security guards at hockey games.
Don and his company had a recognized name and developed a great reputation in the security business. The company grew rapidly from there. Don’s wife was his controller. Don’s son John grew up in the business. He has officially been part of the company since 1989 and is now the CEO. Don and his wife are retired and enjoying life at the coast while John continues to build the company.
