Inter-Con was founded in 1973 by retired Los Angeles Police Department Lieutenant Enrique “Hank” Hernandez. His vision for Inter-Con was to create a company capable of providing comprehensive security solutions to clients whose security needs exceeded the capabilities of traditional “guard companies.” Since then, Inter-Con has grown to become one of the largest security companies in the world, consistently delivering comprehensive, yet cost-effective, solutions to an expansive client portfolio.
Under the guidance of Hank’s son and current Inter-Con CEO, Rick Hernandez, Inter-Con has grown to employ over 35,000 employees performing contracts across North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. Starting with our first contract with NASA, we have expanded to provide security services to Federal, State and Local Governments, Fortune 500 Companies, Public Utilities, Ultra-High Net Worth Individuals, and non-profit organizations.
Above and beyond our commitment to security excellence, Inter-Con remains true to our roots. To this day, we remain 100% family and minority-owned, with our headquarters based in Pasadena, CA. At Inter-Con, we are proud to be Everywhere Security Matters.
