'Shepherd Shield' personal security mobile app puts guard dog in your palm

SEQUIM, Wash., March 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "Shepherd Shield" is a personal security app presented by a family-owned business as a tool that puts a guard dog in the palm of your hand.

Security Services Northwest, a multi-dimensional security company headquartered on Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, offers a new level of personal protection via its Shepherd Shield mobile app.

"It's all about personal security," says Joe D'Amico, SSNW President and owner since 1986. "Shepherd Shield is your own German shepherd, your personal protector, in your pocket."

Shepherd Shield's real-time alerts are issued when a subscriber comes in close proximity of a threat area (based on four threat levels, red being highest), as determined by information obtained from a variety of sources. Subscribers are alerted to Shepherd Shield alerts with the sound of a barking dog.

Users have a customized choice of categories, including high crime areas, active shooter alerts, terrorist threats, weather emergencies, and more. Data can be viewed individually, as lists, and using a map feature. There is also a "report it" function so a subscriber may contribute information.

Shepherd Shield packages provide training for school staff, teachers and students on situational and threat awareness, reaction plans to an active threat, signage and the mobile app itself. The goal is to help campus managers apply a layered approach to security by using the necessary tools, resources and mindset to deny, repel and protect against intruders.

D'Amico began developing his Shepherd Shield concept in the wake of the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut that left 26 dead. As a father of four, D'Amico said he was deeply affected by the tragedy and Shepherd Shield is how he wants to keep his children, and the children of others, safe.

Shepherd Shield television commercials made by Hearts & Minds LLC began airing this week in Washington State.

"We strive to offer protection and peace of mind in the palm of your hand," D'Amico says of the Shepherd Shield app. "When seconds count, count on Shepherd Shield."


Security Services Northwest is an independently owned company founded in 1977 and doing business in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Services include armed and unarmed security officers, patrol services, installation and monitoring of alarm and camera systems, call center and dispatch services, and specialized maritime security for Department of Defense assets.
