About Us

Our Motto: “Vigilance and Integrity.”

In the six years that J. Bowlin Security has been in business, we have grown by adding services and employees. We have been providing protection for medical facilities, manufacturing, retail, HOA’s, large events, and private parties.

Started in 2000 by Daniel Flores, on January 1st, 2018, Flores Security was purchased by James W. Bowlin and his wife Amy from Daniel Flores and his son. The company was rebranded as J.
