Terrell found his introduction to security when the military assigned him to a Presidential Security Detail in 2009. In 2015, he joined the industry as a civilian working in the naval shipyards of Virginia. When looking for a job later on, his experience led him to apply with Omega. Since coming aboard, Terrell has provided excellent and reliable service in the Reading area. He has expressed appreciation for Omega's clarity of instruction, which he states helps him to perform his role effectively.
In addition to his military background, Terrell graduated in 2016 with a degree in Electrical Engineering & Technology. He also holds certification in Fiber Optics and has received a mention in High Tech News magazine. During his off-hours, he independently pursues further studies in fiber optics and communications. In order to keep sharp, Terrell often reads technical documents while listening to hip-hop and rap from the genres' golden age and the early 2000s. In the future, he would like to return to school for CISCO certification, as well as to earn a degree in Optical Sciences & Engineering.

Westley K was working at a bookstore when he bumped into Zach Pacella. Zach presented an opportunity to earn more than he made in retail, so Westley joined Omega. Since then, he has reliably arrived early to almost all of his shifts. He cites a preference for not feeling rushed as his driving motivation to always remain ahead of schedule.
Outside of Omega, Westley attends Penn State University for Business Management and Accounting. Additionally, he has played football for PSU for two years and has swum for Division 2 since his Junior year of high school. Westley credits athleticism with "keeping him sane" as he strives for success in all his endeavors.

A year and a half ago, Richard was looking for a more professional change of scenery. He reached out to Omega and spoke with Jose Ramos, his old coworker, for the first time in over a decade. Jose recognized Richard as a reputable and responsible guard from their time working together at a prior security site, so he helped him to join Omega Protective Services.
Richard brings over three decades of experience in the field of security, having worked as a constable, a paralegal, and a prison guard. Additionally, Richard has devised officer survival training, trained in interviewing and interrogation, managed departments, engaged in employee theft detection, and holds multiple copyrights in security. In academia, Richard is known for his thesis on counter-terrorism, as well as his expertise in: security management and administration; defensive and offensive techniques; and the force continuum.
Richard expresses his gratitude to Omega for providing him with employment that accounts for the time he sets aside to continue his studies. He practices martial arts (with certification from World Taekwondo Federation), trains via powerlifting, and regularly schools in classical Greek philosophy, having read everything from Socrates to Machiavelli.

After several years in the Service, Damian sought the next step in his life. He heard about Omega from his girlfriend’s brother and decided to apply, landing an interview within a week. The hiring managers deemed him a solid fit for a bar near his home address. On the last Thursday of that year, they called him for his first shift. That evening, he met Devin and Greg.
Two years later, Damian keeps going strong! He considers Omega to be quintessential to the unique experience of working security. His military background has provided him with the discipline necessary to keep his composure during intense situations. This has enabled him to easily implement elements of tactical negotiation and verbal judo, often finding peaceful resolutions for unruly guests. Omega’s consistency allows him to build on his approach and continually improve at his job.
Outside of Omega, Damian enjoys writing poetry while listening to contemporary transcendental music. His listening selections often hold messages he considers significant. He also streams video games on his Twitch channel, 5h4d0w_x. Damian primarily plays first-person shooters and RPGs, as well as some casual tabletop games.
"Omega and their leadership care about individual growth. Where other companies may suffocate newer employees, Omega lets their people fly."

Two years ago, Zach was looking for something to do on the weekends and earn some extra income. He had some friends who worked for Omega. As a new guard, he started out working events at Franklin & Marshall College. Zach found everybody on the team to be helpful. After honing his skills, he worked as an ID-checking specialist at the front entrance of Revel Social. From Jose and Greg, he learned about talking to people, as well as reading and predicting situations. Zach feels grateful to Omega for helping him when he needed it.
Today, he works numerous sites and helps wherever he is needed. Outside of Omega, Zach continues to pursue the same two interests he has held since the age of 14: metalworking and music. He discovered metalworking while attending Upper Bucks County Tech School. Zach already had knowledge of woodworking and construction, and the new avenue intrigued him. Today, he holds a fulltime job welding. Music came into Zach’s life via live acts. Seeing the crowd, the lights, and the overall energy at concerts inspired him to take up bass. Today, he plays for a band called Hollow Visions. They have released two EPs and two music videos.
