HISTORY OF WESTERN WASHINGTON MERCHANT PATROL, INC.


With 28+ years of law enforcement and security experience Mr. Donald W. Tardiff started Western Washington Merchant Patrol, Inc. in 1992. Our Company has grown to be the most reputable security force in the area for the past 20 years.


Originating in Lewis County, our company has progressively grown from a one person operation to a company that employs over twenty-five people. This growth has been consistent, always building on our successes. Many of our clients represent multiple properties. This does not include the numerous small event contracts we service. 


WWMP primarily provides patrol services and standing guards for clients. Some examples would be the Department of Natural Resources in Chehalis, WA, Lewis County Mall and Safeway stores. Our reputations in Lewis County helped us expand into Thurston County. We have been able to obtain clients such as The Port of Olympia Regional Airport and Olympia Auto Mall where our officers have a high visibility and contact with citizens on a daily basis. 


We have also expanded into Pierce County area where we have worked at several standing sites and patrol locations in apartment complexes, construction sites, and industrial parks. These sites are also high visibility locations where officers are expected to interact with citizens and clients on a daily basis. These services have been provided in some of the highest crime areas of Tacoma, Lakewood and surrounding communities. We take pride of our relationships with the local law enforcement agencies and our approach with community liaisons on communities we serve in, such as block watch programs.


We have a history of providing services on short-term notice when the need arises. We work closely with some of the largest corporations in the Northwest. When threats arise our short-term response procedures insure we are available when needed, not the following week or later. 


We specialize in patrol and standing guard services and have built our company and reputation on these services. Our close working relationships with our Officers and First-Level Supervisors insures our day-to-day understanding of their duty performance. Our management staff is at your disposal 24 hours a day, seven days a week and on holidays. There are no other companies that we know of, that are willing to give you such access to top management.
