Santa Ana-based Allied Universal, the world’s largest private security firm, has acquired Star Protection Agency, the largest locally owned security firm in Hawaii.

Star Protection Agency, which has been in business since 1991, has guard patrol services at 125 sites throughout the state and provides a range of security technology and consulting services.

“Star’s proven track record of providing quality security solutions will complement and enhance our business in Hawaii,” Steve Jones, global chairman and chief executive of Allied Universal, said in a statement.

Star owner Robin Medeiros and Vice President Anderson Hee have agreed to join Allied Universal to ensure a seamless transition for customers and employees.

“Star takes seriously its kuleana, or responsibility, to the communities we serve,” Medeiros said. “Because Allied Universal has a promote-from-within culture, our employees will have access to growth opportunities throughout the world.”

Jones has grown Allied Universal to more than 800,000 employees worldwide and an annual revenue run rate of around $20 billion.
